Does it have the two-speed automatic rear hub? It looks like it but I can't tell for sure. And look at that headlight!

For what it is worth it was a Murray built bike sold by Sears. 502 is the Sears vendor number for Murray. Roger

Nice! I'm jealous of the saddle. I have the same saddle from my 1960 Flightliner, but it all fell apart. It looks like the chrome evaporated from your tail light. I don't how that happens, but it often occurs with vacuum-metallized plastic. Easily spiffed up by disassembling, fine wet sanding (say 400 grit), cleaning with denatured alcohol, and painting with rattle-can chrome paint. Pictures below are before and after shots of similar tail light on a Murray-built Western Flyer. On this bike, I also painted the front of the tank (headlight), the switch housing on the tank, and the chain wheel cap, all plastic.
Have fun!

Oh i am having fun with this one. Im currently soaking the rims in oxalic acid im reasembing/ fabricating the front of the tank and tires are on the way. Schwinn has a very similar s refector and i always paint them silver. I guess plastic and chrome dont mix

Your serial number has a 2 as a stamp over. That 2 identifies the bike as a 2 speed. Originally that was not scheduled for this frame. Nice find. I'm betting all of the "Space bike" owners, like me, are envious. (Can't be jealous. Envy involves two people, you and the guy who wants what you have - a new convertible. Jealousy involves three people. The guy who has the new convertible you envy takes your squeeze for a ride. You're afraid that he may take something from you. Jealousy usually involves matters of the heart - love. )

I had to do some looking to see what you mean, but you're talking about the "469210" part, correct? The "2" looks like it was stamped over a "0".
