Dave M. is back with another from his—apparently very large—garage.Â This time around it is a well preserved (read as: never ridden) 1983 Murray Adagio.Â I was curious what a “Adagio” meant, and a quick search landed me where you would most expect, Adagio’s Wikipedia page.Â As you can see, an Adagio is a lot of things including:Â a musical notation,Â a chain of self catering apartment hotels,Â a progressive metal band, a regular metal band,Â an American gospel group and quite a few other things.Â However, nowhere was there any mention of a model name to a once prominent American bicycle manufacturer.Â Somebody get on that.
Rescued this old Murray from a dumpster. It showed very little wear. The paint is excellent and the suntour components all worked properly with some minor adjusting. Had to replace some missing parts on the dia-compe’s. Did the usual amount of cleaning, polishing and greasing. Also replaced the dry rotted tires. Looking forward to some dry weather. ten speeds forever.
Thanks again Dave
