1975 Gary Littlejohn Murphy

Here's an early Littlejohn Murphy.

Arguably the first factory built straight tube BMX bike from 1974-5. I built this bike like the one I had when I was in grade school. Motomag I wheels, Schwinn hardware, etc.

Beautiful bike-- from one of the founding fathers!! Hey, could we talk a trade?? LMK, TT.


Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely in a well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting "Holy Sh1t...what a ride!"
