Murray made them for Sears. There are offbrand clones that are slightly different but the Spaceliner is a Sears exclusive.

You can find lots of discussion and pictures on these bikes. It never had a badge, since the tank went around the headtube. The tank had dual headlights and a horn. The luggage rack had a central part containing a taillight and fin-shaped grab rails outside that. The saddle also had a grab rail.

At what point did J.C. Higgins stop using skip toothed cranks? I have an old J.C. and would like to find out the production date. I have the model and serial numbers but don't know what to look for.

If it is a JC Higgins, you know it was made after they started making bikes again after World War II. Sears bikes before the war were Elgin. About the only way to get a good handle on the year of manufacture is to get a copy of the Elgin Hawthorne Collectible bike book and match your bike to one of the catalog reprints.

I have a JC Higgins bicycle that probably made pre-1960's. I would like to determine its manufacture date. The numbers stamped on the crack are: MOST, MOD50245500, 179656. These numbers are one above the other. Any idea's?

I am surprised that I still have these. I must have been doing a poor job of trying to find these axle nuts good homes!
I have axle nuts for sale. Bendix, comet, torpedo, and others. New packages.
Made by Wald. The kickstand people, who were into axle nuts at one time. old, n.o.s.

e- mail. I sell you these, cheap! I am sick of looking at them.
