After a few bike ships in San Antonio declined to work on the bend Bike City agreed to work on it, they did a good job, you can't tell it was ever bent.

I met Ron Keifel of the 7-Eleven team at his bike shop outside of Denver (Wheat Ridge Cyclery). Ron was very friendly and gave me a tour of his place and signed my frame. That evening my truck was broken into but the thieves didn't steal the Murray but it certainly scared me when I seen the broken window.

Awesome frame and even better you had it signed from an actual 7 Eleven rider I've always heard the rumors that the Huffy 7-11 team bikes were made by Serotta its nice to see evidence that they were made by Serotta with the decals on yours. I had 2 collectors over the years tell me the 7-11 bikes are worth big money . Great score man that's one sharp looking paint job.

Tad, you should post an inventory of the parts you're missing, both here and CR - you may get some volunteers...

I blew out both of the old tubular tires so I borrowed the wheel set from another bike for a test drive.
found some DO NOT PASS GO tubulars for you - https://www.probikekit.com/bicycle-tyres/veloflex-arenberg-25-tubular-road-tyre/10854510.html
or, if you want 23mm:
https://www.probikekit.com/bicycle-tyres/veloflex-carbon-tubular-road-tyre/10962672.html
These are the same tires as Vittoria Corsa/ Open Pave, but still made it Italy by the former Vittoria employees.

These are change-your-life tires.
