This Antique Murray Deluxe Fleetline Balloon Tire Cruiser was Murray’s Top of the Line Bike for the Late 1950s. This Deluxe Postwar Fat Tire Bicycle Featured: Unique Murray Dual Spring Fork, Tank, Rack, Chainguard, Light, and other unique Murray parts. Murray made some amazing ballooner bikes with all the bells and whistles. This is Nice Rare Complete Late Murray Deluxe Ballooner Bike, easily rivaling it’s Murray made Brothers: Top of the Line JC Higgins Bikes and The Western Flyer X-53 Bicycles. This Deluxe Fleetline is completely Rebuilt and Patina Restored, Ready to Ride in Style.
This Murray Deluxe Fleetline is one Sweet Survivor, It is Completely Lux Low Cleaned / Rebuilt / Restored and Rides like a Gem. Bike is Super Clean with good chrome and only some slight fading with the Paint. From My Research I believe it to be a 1958 although it could be from the years 1956 -1959. I don’t have a bunch of late Murray literature and since it was obviously complete when I got it, no need to obsess on research and just enjoy it. Murray made some amazing ballooner bikes with solid construction and all the frills. The Styling and parts to the bike are Unique to the Murray Fleetline, with only some similarity to the other Deluxe Murray offerings. The Bike has an Unique Murray Dual Spring Springer, Tank with working horn, Rack with reflector and housing, Chainguard , Deluxe Deep Chrome Fenders, and Murray Delta Head Light ( Works but could use a bit more Tinkering), Troxel Deluxe Saddle, Murray Grips, and Jeweled Pedals. The Drive is a nice 1″ Pitch or Skiptooth Chain. Wheels are Chrome Ballooner Wheels laced to a Union Front Hub and a rear early Bendix coaster brake and have new White wall 26″x2.125″ Goodyear pattern tires. This Murray Deluxe Fleetline Bike is the Cats Meow of Post War Ballooner Bikes that Rides Smooth with Much Style.
