1983 Murray X20R

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.

Headset: Original to the set.
Handlebars: Hutch Pro Raider
Grips:  A'me triangle reproduction

Spider: Sugino
Chain ring:  Tuf Neck 44T

The bitterness of poor quality remains longer than the sweetness of a cheap price.
