Murray is not one of the more desirable brands or that era (Or any era, really). Mens or ladies frame? Condition? There's a huge range of value, and condition is key. If it is a typical old bike of the era with some rust, faded or otherwise poor paint, needs tires, grips, saddle etc then $20-50. If it looks like it just came out of the box -- no rust, great paint, all rubber parts in good condition and it's a mens's frame, then if you find the right buyer I'd guess up to $500 on eBay. Selling something like that locally for top dollar will be tough unless you are in a very large metro area.

You might find your market to be folks who are into atomic age decor who are looking for something to accessorize their shag carpet and white plastic furniture basement hideout as opposed to bike enthusiasts.

I had to go look this one up. Cool looking bike for the era. In my two-minute Google endeavor I ran across this page at CABE which I recommend you probably want to check. CABE forum tends to deep-dive on things a bit less casually than here (IMO): https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/th...ference.35629/

Wouldn't it be interesting if all thread titles were generic like this one?

Sorta like the Craigs listing titled, "bike for sale."

I'm sure I'm not the only one tempted to reply with "whatever the market will bear".

I tried my best to be nice and somehow succeeded
