The Murray and Huffy from that time frame were not worth much and the steel was junk. I may be jaded from working in bike shops a lot back then.
It may have been junk back then, but I bet it would compare favorably with what is coming out of China now! It seems everything gets more cheaply made as time goes on.
If it can't be broken I'll find a way!


I'm not lost, I'm exploring!
