My ELGIN has MOD which=1939...My frame is not like yours my rear chain stay is one piece yours has two bars ,forks are different also,,Can't get pics right now,, will post at a later date,,,,WEEBOB....https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Murray_(bicycles)
Very early to see a 'MOD 502' stamp! 502 was Sears' code for Murray sourced, 501 was Westfield, 503 was eventually Huffy, but also some imports. Typical 40s - 50s Sears bikes were stamped "MOS-" and then the year letter code, similar to the Western Flyer list above.
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?
I have what i believe is a murray but the front badge says alpine on it the numbers o. The bottom Mots-x... MOD 502 46740...and in large numbers 84914 from what i seen its chain guard would be pre 1960 any help would be awesome
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.
