Very nice score. I didn't realize these bikes existed until recently. When I was a kid I wasn't too concerned with Murray bikes because I was drooling over GT, Schwinn and Redlines. I am looking for a 24" right now too but don't really have the funds to buy one right now. so it's pretty cool you got a free one! The one I really want is a 1986 Mongoose Pro Class 24. I just love the way it looks. Hope you can bring some life back into this one.
I had one of those in my garage earlier this past year. Sadly it was way too far gone to save. I stripped the good stuff off of it and scrapped the rest. I believe i still have the rear hub for the bike but the rim was rusted out. Let me know if you need that hub!
Sorry I'm late because sometimes I forget things, this bike would have to be put off for a long time along with most of my bikes since I am trying to sell almost everything I have to buy a 1950 Dodge but of course I am keeping this bike.
I have 20 inch Lester mags I got for $20 awhile back that can go on it but this bike if ever I got into enough money it would have to be re-chromed. The weird thing is some of the chrome is flaking or is already off yet the bottom bracket & headset including the bearings are good.
The chrome as you can see is almost all gone on the handlebars and is separated on the sprocket yet hasn't fallen off.
