Or near Illinois, or I would.

Why not post the pics here, anyway? We all like to see pics, especially of some of the really old stuff.

The part of the round tube frame where it attaches to the rear axle under the seat, is that connection welded or bolted together ?

My engineering information shows a change on serial # R-651 on 3/8/49.
They show an engineering change for serial # R-4000 on 9/26/49. This changed the dust cover on the rear wheels from a screw on cap to a flat plate.
From what I can see on the photos, it looks like it has the flat plate on the rear wheels.
The rear hubs may have wore out and been changed to the later style at some time.

The AKS engine was changed to the AKN engine on 35AB02 - serial # R-4300 on 3/21/50.
So .. I would say the Type # 35AB01 with a AKS engine and a serial # under 800 is going to make this a 1949 model.

Figuring the years on these Ridemasters isn't 100% accurate as they used older stock piled parts on newer models and newer parts were put on older models as repairs and replacements were needed.
That it also assuming the engineering change information that I have is correct in the first place.

Instead of just taking it to the junkyard, why not remove any usable parts first, and list them on Craigslist or eBay? As an example, the fuel tank, if not leaking from rust-through, is an item that Ridemaster owners could well be interested in. Same for front rims, engine, etc.
