Re: Murray, Team Murray, M.O. MFG. CO., Murray collector's unite!!!

There is another post about a "holy grail" bike and which one you would choose. Since I got my X20C, this little beauty has eluded me, I never saw one outside the catalog before. Had some nice parts and some innovations as well. The 1979 Team Murray 360 & 350 . . . .

Re: Murray, Team Murray, M.O. MFG. CO., Murray collector's unite!!!

I can't believe I've never posted this. I call it the "Modern Team Murray Race Project" 1982 X24 that I've updated with modern race parts. I race my GHP most of the time, but take my Murray to the track every couple of months. And she's pretty competitive too. Check her out. I'm going to throw some chrome Landing Gear forks on her soon.

It's exactly the same besides the seat. Just wanted to know if it seemed like a decent deal, what parts they came with

The original seat was an Elina, and they are pricey. I substituted on the seat but everything else is stock. $75 is a great deal if the condition is good. I paid $225 for mine!

Re: Murray, Team Murray, M.O. MFG. CO., Murray collector's unite!!!

Where were the cro-mo frames made?  I worked at the Murray factory in lawrenceburg tn back before I joined the military and don't remember high end bikes made there. Mostly the kmart bikes.

Funny thing, my ex-wife has the very last bike that rolled off that line but let her kids ride it and beat it up. Shoulda been put away.

I think ELF made the cro-mo frames and forks for Murray. Very cool that you worked for Murray!!! I agree, should have kept the last Murray mint!!!

Re: Murray, Team Murray, M.O. MFG. CO., Murray collector's unite!!!

Can I join the Murray club? My first was 78 or 79 330, red and chrome (only seen gold/chrome on here).  I remember looking at them, maybe Kmart? Went with the 330 cause 360 was too much $.  I have a x20r incomplete and a fs500 (made by Murray, sold at sears under free spirit, same frame as x20r with a different fork). Theres a x20r on our local CL that's original complete, even the seat...very cool

Re: Murray, Team Murray, M.O. MFG. CO., Murray collector's unite!!!

That's quite a collection, marsface! My 330s frame was actually chrome/red. Theres gold/chrome versions of it on here. Is it difficult to track down late 70s-early 80s decals(not opposed to repops)?

That thing is in great condition. A pair popped up on Minneapolis CL, might be 85-87 (just guessing). They look to be in fantastic shape. You should have a look
