If you put some wd40 on the steel wool it works better.

older Murray's are definitely collectable. yours is in the middle period, not old enough to be worth a ton, and not crappy enough to be worth it's weight in scrap steel.

basically, it's the perfect bike to shine up, cruise around on, and have fun with.

nice score!
