1980 Murray Baja 26

Rarest of the rare Murray cruisers (maybe)

1980 Murray Cruiser
Not sure of the actual model. The frame only has a manufacturer sticker on seat post tube with the year and a Murray headbadge sticker. This thing has Araya 7c's wrapped in Yellow Mitsuboshi Comp III's,  laced to a Sugino hub up front, a 2 speed Sturmey out back. Also features 180mm Takagi cranks, Sugino Chainwheel, Double clamp Mongoose style stem, Bultaco Motocross bars, Troxel seat, Sugino seat post clamp, Dia Compe 890's, and a Murray/Wrangler pad set. Let me know if you have info on this particular frame... I was told it was a one year only deal.

Re: 1980 Murray Baja 26

They are actually mountaion bike frames but everyone converts them to BMX style cruisers. I will see if I can find the old magazine scan with them in it. I had one myself. Will add to my collection & post

I just pulled one of these out of a barn as a donation. 03/81 build date. All original parts, paint, and decals. Still in MTB form. Needs a good clean up but a cool bike.cool

There were mountain bikes around in 1980?  Looks like a cool ride.  Never seen one before.
