A look at the headbadge and front sprocket would give us better clues of what it is. and there should be a set of numbers either on the BB or the rear drop out or maybe some where on the head tube. I maybe wrong but Id say its not a schwinn do to the chain guard wrapping over the back sprocket

I suspect it's a huffy, built for Sears. Murray built Sears bikes have a 502 prefix. Imported 3 speeds for Sears usually have 503, i think some Monark built Sears bikes also used it, so 505 would be a likely Huffy coding, as they did have a few Huffy built bikes over the years. not nearly as much as Murray though. -Adam
