Interesting. Perhaps Murray dropped the "O" for some of their sub-brands like Derby. It would be great to determine what the rest of the numbers indicate.

I would like some assistance on obtaining the correct year of my Sears Murray. It's an old rat bike and not worth anything, but was given to me by my fiance' but I have done a little work. One thing that was cool is the rear wheel is a 1936. I do know the bike isn't that old, just interesting I thought. The number is 502 451610 750131. Any and all help will be deeply appreciated.

Searched this thread for "spyder" and didn't see anything, so I figured I'd throw this into the mix...

Just picked this up from Craigslist. 24-inch coaster-brake Spyder. Front wheel was an extra I had around and the front fender is missing, but other than that I think it's all original Murray-built Sears. Here's the serial:

502 Sears prefix. 45970 could be a model number... in the '66 Sears catalog, the 5-speed version of this bike is model number 45971. Anybody have any other light to shed?

thnx in advance...

Hey guys, got this one back in July. Cleaned it and got it in riding condition. I've dated it to be a 68, but not sure. The s/n is M0821x28 308728. It has Murray II on the chain gard and Fleetwing on the tank. Just wanted to make sure I've dated it correctly. Sorry but the uploading of the photos is not working.

I have this Federal's branded Murray. The serial is MO5361X92359132
I am guessing this means that it is a 1965. Maybe X9 or X92 was the Federal's code?

Edit: I misinterpreted the serial number. I believe my 2nd character is a 0 and an O. This is actually a 1970 and not a 1965
