    Spaceliner ,was built by Murray of Ohio.

    4161 is the Sears catalog # for a 1961 JC Higgins Flightliner, with the chrome frame. -Adam

    Yes, Murray built most of Sears' bikes from 1938-90s. Most also had a comparable Murray badged model, as well as Murray built Western Flyers, Hiawathas, etc. -Adam
