1981 Murray TRX

My first childhood BMX reborn! Not too many of these beauties in the museum! LOL

Rescued from my fathers Glenside PA basement in 2010, the 2012 Department Store Buildoff was the motivation I needed to get this baby restored.

F&F refinished by me with black appliance epoxy
I recreated the decals in CAD & sent to local printer, Murray head tube decal from Wiredbikes
Original parts: Persons seat and guts; wald chain wheel; crank; grips; headset, bottom bracket; chain guard
Replaced OEM parts: clover cap chrome rat trap type pedals; Wald seat post; Wald seat post clamp; Wald stem; Kenda comp 2 style tires 20x2.0; chrome KMC chain
Non-OEM parts: Wald box bars (original Wald bars did not have a crossbar, which by the way was a source of ridicule when I was a boy); chrome steel wheels with coaster; blue dice caps; Murray TRX bar pad
