WANTED:   1965 Sears Spaceliner girls posted by: Denise Mattingly on 4/16/2001 at 4:18:01 PM
I recently came across this 1965 Sears girls Spaceliner for 10$ and have decided to restore it. All in all it appears to be in good condition. I am looking for a tank and some unknown piece that fits onto the back rack, can anyone help me out? Is this bike even worth restoring? I believe it has the original tires. Also I am not positive on the date, it does have a 1958 plate on the back which through me for a loop. Thanks to anyone that can assist me. Denise


   RE:WANTED:   1965 Sears Spaceliner girls posted by jj on 4/17/2001 at 5:17:34 AM
Definitely a keeper.
The unkown piece for the back rack was probably the rear tail light. It was an enclosed unit.

   RE:WANTED:   1965 Sears Spaceliner girls posted by dave on 4/17/2001 at 6:36:18 PM
hi Denise - The bike sounds like a great buy at $10. The only problem is that Spaceliners had wimpy tanks, they were easily broken and are now hard to find. i only mention it so that you don't spend too much on the bike and never find a tank. You might just want to enjoy it as is knowing you got a great Sears bike for $10.
