Here's the next project on the stand. Since I had to pull it out the other day thinking I was going to steal some parts for Color Flow but, turned out the trussrod was too long for the flow.
This is an all original 1953 girls Murray badged Strato Line (serial M O S).
When I got it I assumed it was black accent on cream or tan and with light blue and gold pinstripes
Turns out it is an off white not tan. Lots of patina and speckled rust. Some pitting but all in all not that bad.
Crazy part about this one is....somebody came by the backyard shop yesterday to buy my 46 bkack girls Viking badged Columbia and liked this one better. It wasn't even listed.
Let's hope the cleanup works out. Lots of WD40 000 & 0000 rubbing on this one. But because it didn't have horn in the tank the wife said she didn't like it.
