    Very Nice! Looks like he needs a girlfriend ;). Here's my happy couple, a 1961 JC Higgins Flightliner and a 1964 Sears Spaceliner 1961JCHigginsFlightliner.jpg 1964SearsSpaceliner.jpg

    Appreciate your comment. Now to put some miles on it and add a couple of tasteful accessories. I just put NASA valve stem caps since this is a Spaceliner and I'm thankful to work in the aerospace industry that supports NASA.

    A picture of your two bikes was very influential on my pursuing a Spaceliner. Honest

    That's one of the nicest condition Spaceliners I've seen. It's especially nice since it's one of the first ever to be produced for the '64 model year, and you got all the original documentation and pedal wrench. I still have the pedal wrench I received with mine, in '64, but the documentation is long gone, unfortunately.

    Yours is worthy of being added to the Spaceliner Reference photo gallery. Let me know when you get a chance to take some good pics from a variety of angles.

    Nice eye! That is from a 1963-1966 Murray Astro Flite with the hard to find round pop-up light which I think looks killer. Plus, and I couldn't find a Ladies Spaceliner rack.;)

    Nice. It looks good. It adds a bit of pizzazz versus the stock rack.
