      What year is the bicycle and what condition is it in? Could you send a picture? Murray’s have never been known for their craftsmanship, but a vintage model in great condition could be worth some money. A newer Murray normally won’t be worth very much.

      Are these adult tricycles or children’s tricycles?

      I’d say for children’s tricycles, I would shoot for ~$200 USD.

      If they’re adult tricycles, you could be looking at anywhere between ~$500-$1000 USD

      Murray is a very often collected and highly sought bicycle manufacturer. It’s a double-edged sword: they’re great collectables, easy to find; they generally don’t fetch very much cash because of their abundance.

      We’d love to see some pictures!
