    Late 50's Murray Solar Flight

    Late 50's Murray Solar Flight : (Spaceliner): This is a fresh custom build I entered in this years build off, but got busy and never got the finished pics in. Its a combination of new and refinished vintage parts. It rides smooth as silk, and the 2 speed makes it far more versatile than a...

    Frame ID (please)

    Thank you! I can't see the serial # anywhere. The frame is powder coated, so if the # was faint it looks like its been filled in. There isn't even an impression to hint as to the # location. I was hoping that would help hone things in a bit more.

    Thank you! I tend to take my bikes too far, and this one is no exception. I guess having the time to do it is why I don't mind. I have this gorgeous chrome pintle (half link) chin I want to use, and realized yesterday their made for bmx bikes, and are a good 8-10 inches short. So, to Ebay I...

    Did a little painting: As insane as it sounds I have like 8 hours of repair, prep, and painting into the bezel and control panel, and their still not perfect. Took a little creative work to salvage the decals. Pressed in the Truvativ cups: First, I had to dremel inside the bb...

    Finally got to threading and cutting the fork. The heavy re-chrome gave me some issues, as the crown needed to be filed to accept the race, and the front axle needed flat spots filed in it to fit the axle in the dropouts. Got the head set reducers (1 1/8" to 1") and headset in as well...

    Too much, or too little? I refurbish a lot of vintage swap parts, and even with that it'll be one of my cheapest builds! It all ads up fast!

    Not free! I wish. I just blew almost $1500 to buy parts to finish about 6 bikes. This one will be a bit over $300 total when its done.

    The paint itself will stay, but I have work to do on the tank bezel and control panel. I planning to salvage the decals, which are in rough shape, which will leave some of the chrome as well. The one good thing about the BB adapter is that if there were to be any slippage it will be stopped...

    Lets try that again: The bottom bracket has been painfully clearance for a Truvativ American to Euro adapter. I also have YST pressed sealed bearing BB's with shaft colors that allow adjustment for chainline. I'm thinking the Truvativ might be best since the work is done.

    Thanx guys. I guess its only right I keep one. I originally wanted to do 700c wheels, but its now been done enough times that I figured I'd do hot rod instead. I'll post pics of the parts when they get here. Falstaff: Just sold the last of what I have other than this frame. Sorry.

    Its crazy how popular they've become. I had no problem selling off 7 over the winter! I'm hoping this one stands out at least a little. If nothing else it should be fun to ride!

    This is the last of a collection of Spaceliners I decided to sell off, and since it hasn't sold, and its RRBO time, I figured why not? The bike is a Murray Solar Flight (Spaceliner) I picked up a few years ago (1st of many) with the intention of building a custom. It was sitting as a badly...
