Serial numbers are normally unique. The head tube includes a stamping of 77 and 87, and also a sticker for a head badge.I can't find this one any where.
These are pages (312 and 313 )out of the 1959 Sears Christmas Wish Book.I picked this up yesterday and want to confirm what I've come up with so far.
Serial number is on the BB. MOD 502 46900Y. 292034.
There's a picture of a very similar bike in post #7 on this thread and it's identified as a 59 - 60. A couple post later someone says it's a 59 because in 60 the chain guard was modernized. Mine has a differer chain guard so I'm "assuming" mine is a 60. However, mine is missimg the tank.
I don't know why my pictures come out upside down.
Different chain guard
So if anyone can confirm or deny my suspicions, I'd appreciate it.
I guess I'll also need the tank. Did these come with jeweled pedals? What does the seat look like?
Thanks for any help.
Monterey became a retro style cruiser in '77, made through the '90s. A pic may help narrow down the year. Also, the ones made in TN have a black decal at the bottom of the seat tube which usually has a build date.Hello, I'm hoping you can help me with a bike I just picked up. It's a Murray Monterey and I'm trying to figure out when it was made. I've found a couple numbers on the front, the first is MO6 005020 and the second it P3840870. I appreciate any help, thanks!
It needs a lot of work. Picked it up for free, it had been sitting outside for who knows how long. Decided it could be a project bike with my oldest.Monterey became a retro style cruiser in '77, made through the '90s. A pic may help narrow down the year.
