So picked up this bike at a yard sale. Didn't pay much for it but knew it was a vintage style. Thought about possibly restoring it. Seems I'm missing some things on the front. 22.5" rim 24" tall with aired tire. Serial number was on bottom side of the frame. However wondering what I have really? What year is this? How common of a bike?

That basically Murray’s version of the Ladie’s Spaceliner or Strato Flyer. Murray built all those bikes for different companies that marketed them. It is a mid 60’s era bike.

So is there anywhere to get stickers for this if I was to restore it or to find either light on the front that is missing?

Unless it's a labor of love, don't spend too much on it—these Spaceliner-types are worth about a few hundred bucks complete and in mint condition, especially the step-through versions. I paid $25 for a frame for Interrobang and someone said I overpaid. After working on it, then riding the finished product, I can't quite say they were wrong. Great looking frame, though—I wish someone would remake them with modern seamless tubing and components. The TRM tank on Interrobang stiffened it up a lot, which is testimony to both the quality of the TRM tank and the wispiness of the frame. Of course, I'm 5'11" ~175 with longish legs (seat sits higher, so more torsional load on the frame) and these were made for 100 lbs women 50 years ago.
