    This guy has some local history in my area, Many people saw this bike being ridden dailey since it was new by a man that owned the local Burts Chuck Wagon . It was retired and sold at an auction . then of course i was looking for another tank bike to enjoy and it surfaced ! so a little tlc and its one of the most fun crusiers i have to date. i still have all orignal parts to restore it one day..... but its to cool in my opinion just as it is . thanks hope you enjoy ! I've never tried to see what year it may be any ideas? it had a skip tooth crank and painted rims originally.

    Early-mid '50s, it should have a code on the BB, "MO-" plus a letter, which is the year. Those Huffy Cranbrook parts look good on there! Murray serial chart.jpg

    thanks for the info ! i do still have all the orignal parts for it . i need to relace the rims to do the restoration, but for now i can ride it every day this way!!! i need one or two more of these tires though i wore thease out this summer , i think the newer parts look realy cool on it though . kinda retro mod so to speak.
