    • Hi Debbie. The retro styled Murray bicycles that were made in the 1980′s and 1990′s don’t have a collector following, but they do make good riders, so if it’s in good shape, it’s worth keeping around and using! Some of the early ones had whitewall tires that say “Lightning Dart” on the side. If your bike has these and they are in good shape, they are worth about as much as the bike itself. Made in USA, they are getting harder to find and are desirable to collectors.
