MISC:1966 Murray 3-Speed posted by: Jack on 1/7/2011 at 10:25:24 PM
I obtained a 1966 Murray 3-Speed, i think. That's the best I got because the only brands on their is "Proven" on the front, plus "Proven" & "Alpine" on the chain guard. The rear, bottom number stamped into the frame is MO6131X50549060. A little research came up with 1966 Murray. It has a 1962 3.3.3. 3-speed internal transmission with a grip twist. All original parts including white-wall tires. The brakes have an interesting emblem stamped onto them; it looks like a whale so I'm thinking Japan. Transmission works flawlessly, it is now in incredible shape after polishing all of the chrome. I want to keep it but could use some cash for college next year. Any info on the actual brand and year or value would be much appreciated.

Looks like a Murray Alpine with a Shimano 3-speed hub.
Looks from the 1960s (no reflectors on the pedals).
It would make a great commuter in a college or city for $150 - $200 if all tuned and read-to-ride.

No there aren't reflectors on the pedals, thanks jj. This is the most info I have.

What distinguishes a vintage Schwinn tandem from a vintage Schwinn Town and Country Tandem? I have an old Schwinn Tandem that has the shifter on the DT.

RE:FOR SALE:Schwinn Town & Country tandem wanted posted by jj on 1/31/2011 at 4:34:48 AM
I think the Town and Country tandem came first.
Then they called it a Schwinn Twinn.
The Town and Country name was also uswed on their 3-wheeled adult bikes.

You cannot determine the model from the serial number.
The Hollywood was a girls model and the Tornado a boys model.
Check them out in the Picture Database at the top of any page here on OldRoads

RE:MISC:1960 schwinn posted by Patri=ck on 1/7/2011 at 9:54:55 AM
