First off, let me state for the record I know basically nothing about building bicycles but I did recently partially restore a '64 Stingray and have been bitten by the Muscle Bike bug. For years I've admired them and wanted one (or ten) but just never got around to seriously looking for one. I fully expect to come in last in this 'competition' but that's not the reason I'm entering. Frankly I couldn't care less about winning anything anyway, I just want to 'build' something cool and enjoy it. The skills & creativity that most of you other guys have I can't compete with anyway. So anyway, here's a little something about the victim..........................According to the vast amount (not really I just did a quick Google search) of research I've done this X-65 is kind of a rare bird. I found it on eBay about a month ago and the seller accepted my best offer. It's in decent shape but you can tell maintenance wasn't high on the priority list of the former owner(s). This Murray will not be a full on restoration/repaint. I will take it apart, clean/polish/refurbish, put it back together and most importantly, ride it. The work will start soon, I'm just waiting for my new work stand to arrive, I'll post plenty photo updates along the way but like I said, don't expect anything ground breaking or earth shattering. BTW, I need a head badge for this thing, if anyone had one please let me know. You can see my other entry into the MBBO here.....................Radioactive Heap '65 Stingray.
