    That's cold. And inaccurate. Serotta made Murray bikes for the 1984 Olympics. If this is one of those, it is far from worthless. Pix would be nice.

    +1 If it is a Serotta model, lots of value. Otherwise, not much at all. Post pics. If it is a Serotta model, MAJOR score! It will be pretty obvious.

    Murray made a host of bikes that were 1984 Olympics models, including juvenile bikes, cruisers, and so on.

    Murray was the "official bike" of the 1984 Olympics. So this allowed them to label the entire product line with 1984 Olympics graphics, regardless of quality.

    If it's a "1984 Olympics Model," then it's almost certainly not an actual Murray bike from the Olympics from that year. As a former owner of an actual 1984 Olympics Murray-Serotta, I'm in a pretty good position to know. Pics will of course tell the story, but for starters, my 1984 Olympics Murray-Serotta wasn't labeled in any way, shape, or form as a "1984 Olympics Model." It did have some really cool pantographing. I'm only currently aware of two of the authentic bikes out there - mine (ex) and Ron Kiefel's.

    I sold a Murray Adagio that had a 1984 Olympics decal on it for $80 last June. Close??? I doubt it's the Serotta in question.
