This 1988 Murray Monterey 26" was rescued from the clutches of some abusive little children at a yard sale. The heathens had almost completely destroyed it. Perched like vultures on the porch steps, the kids shot us icy glares as we carried the bike away to safety. When we found it, the tires were flat, handlebars bent, rims taco'd, and frame covered in rust. Here's a picture:
(warning - not for the faint of heart)
The bike was completely stripped down, aligned, tuned up, given a new two-tone paint job, tubes, and tires. It is a heavy bike with a solid steel frame and it cruises like a dream. Balloon tires and a wide, springy seat make for a very comfortable ride. This bike has been getting a lot of attention in the short time that we took it out for photos. I wish I had a few more of these ready because I could sell them all quickly.
