Posted by: Yael Silverman TITLE: AGE / VALUE: can anyone give me information on this bike?
I found this bike abandoned last week and am now working on restoring it. It says "sportcrest deluxe" on it and it also says "bendix". it also has a crown logo on the back. I tried researching it and have come up with little results. It is very cool though! I would love to know the make/year.

That~s an early 60s Murray. It~s related to the Flightliner and was built for a retailer. Sportcrest makes me think of Penney~s but I wouldn~t bet on it. One of the hardware or auto supply or department store chains, anyway. Bendix manufactured the coaster brake hub. Does the hub have three red stripes, by any chance?
