    This ones a 1964 Sears Spaceliner with about the same year 2 stroke engine,I put a new nt carb and a ebay expansion exhaust on Her,new tires and tubes after truing wheels...done the bearings...lubed the cables and whew,Shes fast and smooth..:) i just wonder about Her,whoever built Her in the 60s new what they were doing...seems these engines have been around a while..this ones got a few miles! after cleaning the old gas tank,i used Lucas oil,as there was a tube of it in the little saddle bag, She seemed to be used to it. Now I just wonder...if loved and cared for,just how many miles can one git from these.

    There were no China girls in the USA in 1964.

    Maybe 10 years ago. Where is your proof that you have a 1964 China girl? :)

    I think the Russian D motors were first made in 1958 and I don't know when
    the first Chinese motors were made.

    Spaceliners are really nice bikes. Do you have pics?

    Well, I don't think the op actually claimed that it was a china girl. Though he did mention some modern parts. But perhaps they can fit on some other engines.

    I'm not familiar with the Sears Spaceliner. Though it certainly sounds like a model from the era.

    I'd sure like to see some pics, too.

    The Spaceliner is an awesome bike. I can't wait to see a pic.

    at that age, probably a cast iron cylinder. in other words, it will last forever with some care.


    it could be a russian engine, an italian engine, a japanese engine... a british engine, an american engine... even an australian engine :)

    everyone has seemingly had a go at making engines on pushbikes at one point. its where suzuki started :) harley and indian... bsa... you name it, they probably did it :) they were really big around the 30's...
