    Help me identify this bike, please.

    I got this bike when a older couple left it at the house I moved into. It's mostly faded so it's hard to see any trademarks or logos. Thank you for any help in advance

    IDing your bike could be easier if the pictures weren't all upside down.

    I'm using an iPad and whenever I upload the pictures it makes them upside down.

    The headbadge reminds me of the old Firestone Tire logo. Department store bike?

    My thinking, as well -- definitely low-end. A full drive-side picture might be instructive, as well of closeups of all frame lugs or junctions.

    I think many of the big companies such as Murray built bikes that were then re-badged for specific markets including Firestone.

    Firestone did either make or re-badge bikes at one time. Here is a 3-speed from about that era

    Anyway, it might be a fun "town bike" to ride. However, it is not particularly valuable. If you choose to restore it, keep your investment low (new tires, tubes, grease, cables, and important safety stuff).

    I would say it is an Upside Down bike. One of the few bikes that defy gravity.

    Just a perfect match for the "Velcro Bike".
