New project.

Just picked up my new Murray project. Does anybody have a rear wheel for one?

Re: New project.

Looks like you might need a front wheel , too . :)

Re: New project.

Hopefully the engine cases are good...seems like the only thing that could be on this one.

Re: New project.

Maybe it's the angle, but that frame looks bent

Re: New project.

The frame is straight and it's actually pretty solid. I think the paint is mostly just burnt from sitting in the sun. It could be saved if someone really wanted to. But im pulling the E50 off and scrapping the rest.

I will be tossing it in the scrap pile at work on Monday. If anyone wants it for some reason, it's free. I'm located in Oklahoma. Maybe weld a top tube on it and make a Magnum clone? Maybe replace a rusted bent frame on your bike? I don't know.

If you'll ship I'm interested in buying the swingarm, pedal shaft and shocks

Re: New project.

I'll pull those parts off today and find a box.

I told my wife that I was going to restore it. She didn't think the joke was funny.

I split the cases and the clutch/transmission are spotless and look great. The crank is trash.

Re: New project.

Glad something is usable off that anchor.

Re: New project.

The forks look surprisingly straight too

Re: New project.

They are straight. The headlight brackets are bent. But the forks themselves are fine.

Agreed, that thing was crashed hard...

Re: New project.

The frame is straight. Not really worth arguing over. But, its not crashed or bent. Ugly? Yes. Crusty? Sure is. Rusty? You bet. Bent? Nope.

Allllll I wanted was the E50.
