I'm glad to have this one done. It's one of my favourite bikes. I always loved that front end, and when I got a chance to own one for just $200 and some spare parts I jumped at it. It's also cool to have a bike that was born the same year as I was. I entered 3 bikes in this round and 2 are crossing the finish line. I'll take those results any year. Here is my final pic with a few close-ups. I hope you like it!!

I'm with you, my favorite bike. I just wish it came in big kid size, or at least my welding skills were up to par.

Anyway, well done. Glad to see it in the finished thread.

Love the Murray kats. The king kat forks may be my favorite vintage chopper forks! Nice work!

I had never ridden one before the other day, and I was surprised at how much fun it was to ride despite the low seat and the raked headset.
