    Here is a quick run down of what was done:

    1965 Sears Spaceliner frame, cut off at the rear drop outs.
    Seat tube removed.
    New seat tube rolled from new tubing and welded into new location.
    Frame braces/fender mounts removed
    Chain stays heated and bent down about 15 degrees.
    Seat stays and chain stays spread to accommodate wide hub/tire/wheel
    Chain/Seat stays removed from scrapped Murray Mark 3 girls frame and welded to Spaceliner frame.
    Mid tubes removed from head tube and raked/spread and then rewelded.
    Seat stay and Chain stay cross braces welded in
    Rear axle style kick stand welded to chain stays as bolt on would not support the weight
    Rolled a 13/16 seat post to work with new seat tube shape, Refurbished Troxel installed
    Rims from Dolomite 26x4: added Shimano 7 spd free wheel, NOS Schwinn pie plate, 160mm rotors
    Tektro disc set up, universal rear disc mount.
    Widened/disc converted canti springer
    26x3 Beach Bums stretched to fit
    Shifter: Old Schwinn friction shift rear der, Craftsman ratchet drilled out and bushing pressed. Mounted to wheel chair clamp.
    Nearly new Delta light and battery box. Converted to 12v sealed beam/gel cell
    Front rack: Chopped from my old Vespa rear rack. Holes tapped, brackets/bushings fabbed
    Paint is matte clear/Gloss black
    Probably forgetting some stuff...

    If Spaceliners were made today, I'm sure this is what they would've evolved to.
