Replacing My old bike

1983 Murray X20R .  Department store bike with some good parts.  This one has been upgraded a bit. I ditched the 28 spoke steel rims with ACS hubs and crappy v-bars. This is how I would have built it back in the day. I got a bike like this for my 13th birthday in November 1983.  I broke the frame at the head tube doing too many jumps. Good memories of riding back them. Who didn't have a Murray at some point.
