    Found out in PA, and it appears to have been painted to match the barn it was found in! I figured I would share it with you. It's a great ride and if anyone has any information on this bike it would be cool to hear.

    Looks like a 60's Murray.

    Yeppers, Murray for sure. Maybe early 60's and a serial will tell all.

    LOVE IT!

    The barns of PA have coughed up some of the nicest vintage bikes ever!

    Looks like you scored!

    Definitely not a 1954 model. ;)
