Thanks so much!! It's an old Murray frame (early 70's). I had it sand blasted then I sprayed clear coat over it. The fork is from a 60's Murray Spaceliner. The wheels and tires are new. Rear is a Sturmey Archer internal 3 speed that I adapted an old Shimano stick shifter to. I made the tank myself from some aluminum and Olympic Rivets.
I love old bikes. i'm working on a 50's JC Higgins now. I'm not going to paint it. I want to leave all the patina just clean it really well and make it function. I don't have the original wheels so I will probably get a Nexus 7 speed internal rear wheel at some point. I love internal geared hubs. Many come with a coaster brake so you don't need to run cables for brakes.
I just sold a 71 Raleigh 3 speed that I found in the weeds on the side of the road. it must have been there for a year. I got it home, cleaned it, greased it and it rode near perfectly.
I still have my Raleigh 10 speed from 1977 hanging in my garage. I plan to restore it next.
Can a guy have too many hobbies?
