Re: 1984 Team Murray X20FS III

I grew up in Oak Ridge, Tennessee and there was a department store - Kings - or something like that that had this particular model for sale. I always wanted one but never got one. There was another store named Otasco and they sold both Blue Max's and Black Max's. I ended up getting a GT Pro Performer but after all these years I remembered how freakin sick that Murray was - with the front hand brake, a coaster brake rear and white Z-Rims! That thing is beyond awesome! If you ever decide to sell one - I'd have to ask you to put me on the short list, I'd love to have one of those! Can't believe you got two - ESPECIALLY NOS! I've been wandering when one of these would show up on the museum! Beautiful!
