If its an '86 or '87 (maybe more years in this range, but those two for sure), it should have the year on the head tube decal...

...on the blue '87, you can kinda see an MO7, which probably means your MO6 is an '86.

Hey All!!!

Firstly.... GO TIGES!!!!

Now down to Business..... PLEASE can anyone help me identify my ol vintage Bmx??
For the life of me..... i just cannot find what it is. Murray is the closest i have come to believe. Also due to the cleats welded for a chain guard.

I just cannot work it out though!

Everything about it looks Schwinn to me (Predator), except the serial. Pretty sure not a Murray, to my knowledge they never had dropouts that looked like that (almost all pinched tubes, and the 'Team' Murrays that weren't pinched, still didn't look like that).

If it isn't Schwinn...its probably an Akisu made bike as they ran that style of dropout as well.

I need help with mine too, doesn’t really match up with what’s going on with this list. Mine is on the dropout, it is a Murray View attachment 1070305

Please help.
Chrome frame came out in '61, and continued through the late '60s. Commonly called 'Flightliner' or 'Spaceliner', depending on the frame style, after the Sears models. Yours doesn't have '502' or 'MOD 502' on it, so not a Sears bike. A full pic would help.

Chrome bike - MOW might be 1963-W; (see page-1, post-1).
Murray may have had 2 basic serial number lists overlapping in the classic period; (with the 2nd skipping more letters). The first list began in the beginning ~1936 with an “A”. The second list is consistent with a restart post-war ~1945 or so.
The style doesn’t fit a 1957-W (early list), as it is likely a 1960’s space bike.
