Thanks, This one was from Mike Melton and the rest of the crew at the Huffy technical center. Serotta built the Murrays like the one Leonard Nitz rode to third in pursuit. There's a long boring story to that about the internal politics of the team.

Great machine. I believe Ben Serotta and the late Mike Melton actually built the frames for the US team back then

It's art (and history). I remember a teaser advt on the back cover of Bicycling - this or a track version draped in the US flag saying 'The 25,000 dollar bicycle (or something close). Smile! Thanks for sharing!
