    Here are a few photos of two of the bikes I picked up today, just having trouble figuring out what models they are.

    In the 3rd photo on this hook at the rear wheel has the # 20x6 38554 I think the last digit is a 4, sadly the rear of the bike has been ran over, going to try to straighten it, can tell it had a tank at one time, red bike in the backgroud was a third bike I picked up with these.

    2nd bike I have looked every where and just can't find any markings, does have New Departure Brake, 3's may be covered over in old paint. Is a skip tooth bike.

    The first is a Murray
    And the second is possibly a Huffman /huffy.

    First is Murray with AMF sprocket

    Second looks Snyder built. I've never seen a skiptooth version of that sprocket

    Thanks Goys, :) I'll start with those and do some research, anyone think the first one is worth saving, going to take some work to straighten the rear of the frame.

    After googling those leads on the second bike I found a Peerless almost dead on and matching handle bar, sprockets a little different, my bikes missing nose plate has holes to the side like a Peerless would have.

    Try Rollfast and Hawthorne for the second one. The Synder built bikes would have been badged as one of those. Could have had a Peerless badge too, I'm not sure about those though.

    Looked at the Hawthorne and found the same Peerless bike listed with Rollfast, So this bike fits the bill for either.

    I guess it comes down to which used a New Departure Sprocket Etc. or did they both?

    Probably both, they were all made by Snyder and badged differently for whoever was selling it

    That Snyder should have the year stamped in reverse on the BB , so "94 EH" would be a 49. No one's really sure what the two letters stand for. That chainguard is from something else, and the chainring is a mystery, never seen anything like it on anything besides some 60s-70s huffys, which of course weren't skip tooth. -Adam

    Well I may strip down the paint, not sure yet if I want to but if I do I may find some painted over #'s, I've since found two more old bikes, one I know is a Schwinn with a high goose neck for the handle bar, others just a rusty frame and very wide rear fender, may make a interesting future build.
