1978 Rampar R11 400X Cro Mo 3T

Twins shall not be separated!!

I was on my way to K.C. to check out a chrome Murray something I saw on CL. I was there for about 20 minutes looking over this pretty nice Murray getting ready to shell out $50 when I just noticed a couple of bikes pushed against the wall. Double take to notice they were identical Rampar looptails. Had to ask if they were for sale and "Shirley Pimples" they were and I got em'. Left the Murray behind raced outta town! One owner bought new, they say in 1980, for two boys on X-Mas. Everything is OG but the tires on one bike. The other still has the KIK SUPER MX-8 tires. Both have Tuff II's (one Tuff not stamped). Serial # are 1316 apart from each other. Not sure if I want to do anything to these maybe decals someday. Sure glad I went to view the Murray

I grew up with twins and you can't seperate them even if you want to.

Instant fav.  Sweet find.  Most of them that I have seen have the left fork decal, in my opinion upside down, with the 400 on the bottom.  That must have been how that company did it because of the 2 I have seen in person and the above nos pic it is going the same way.
