Were the X20R's Thruster built?? The chainstays and drops looks Thruster-ish, the ones that dont have the pinch weld drops.

RE: Were the X20R's Thruster built??
I think they were murray-built in Tennessee.  but yeah, I've seen the similar rear drop out style somewhere else too.

That orange frame in post above is a perfect match for an akisu frame and fork. One of my Kent bikes has that exact same setup. cool bikes too...

I Believe They Were Murray-Built In Tennessee As Well And Correct Me If I'm Wrong, But The X20C's (Chromoly Version) Were Made By Both Elf -And- VDC For The The Murray Factory Team Riders BITD.

I was gonna sell this, but recently changed my mind.  Never seen one this color in real life and it's 80% original.  Gonna give her some TLC.
