Looks to be a Sears MX muscle bike likely built by Murray they sold these for several years back in the 70's pretty much the same bike for every team except with different decals and seat covering. Fairly low end bike from the late 70's since this one is chrome NFL edition probably $200 or so to a collector.

Most popular NFL team. Most valuable sports franchise in the world.


I can see it going for the $200 or more....

The value is not in the bike (which would be worth maybe $50 at best), but as a football collectible. Try asking on a sports memorabilia forum.

That's pretty good advice. I would not have thought of it but well done.

I'd pay $200 to work it over with a crow bar, shoot at it on a range and, finally, fill the tubes with kerosene, stick an Irvin jersey on the bars and light it on fire.

The Gauchos should be stuck in a cave with carrot head, with only veggie burgers to eat, and be forced to listen to Oasis champagne supernova and the tragically hip all day, everyday, until they turn on one another and resort to cannibalism. My money is on carrot head being the lone survivor.

I have the PERFECT name for your guys when the owner stops pretending it isn't horribly offensive and inappropriate -

KC Chiefs

I have the same bike, but it's the KC Chiefs version. Needs a little work. Missing the decal on the seat I believe.

Not worth much except to the right collector. A bike like that is worth about $50.
