enter image description hereThe serial is 502 46560 887408. The bike is complete, I may fix it up as a cruiser, or completely restore it depending on parts availability, but for now I'm trying to find out the basics. I can see a bracket on the head tube, perhaps it once had a tank? enter image description here

    Are there letters before the serial number such as MOTS-V? The 502 is a sears model, likely made by Murray. If it has the original sturmey archer hub there may also be a date code stamped on the shell such as 0956 which would translate to September 1956. – Nate W Oct 18 '17 at 20:34

    Also please include a picture of the entire bike or frame and i may be able to help narrow it down. – Nate W Oct 18 '17 at 22:48

for Sears the first 3 digits are a manufacturers code.

502 is for Murray Ohio as the manufacturer.
