Well a little tongue in cheek but still this bike seems to want to be more than it is....

a little crusty but rides like a Cadillac ... It doesn't know it has a 333 hub and not a Sturmey!

Heck it don't even know it's a Murry

Yeah, the 333 hubs I have used were not bad at all. Actually I thought setting them up was easier too. Nice bike, looks like fun.

And there are some Huffy 3 speeds from the 60's that are in fact re-badged Raleigh's from England.

You did a really nice job with that Murray. Slap an old Brooks saddle in it and some leather looking hand grips....

I have thought about doing something similar a few times, but I always end up just selling them off for cheap.

That's what I thought the thread title was referring to.

I was hoping for one of the Alex Moulton bikes that Horace Huffman was so taken with.
