Went to get a wheel trued for a friends bike and the little bike shop had this and a huffy out back. Serial number decoder says 58 but it’s crusty and one of the cantilever bars are bent. I’ll be throwing away the 3 speed wheel set and converting it to coaster brake eventually. Apparently I can’t pass on a 10 dollar bike even though I don’t care for scwhinns

Torch and candle wax. Now i can use the crusty front fork too. It will sit in the corner and think about what it did while I figure out what I want to do.

Got rid of my mbbo bike and acquired a camaro today. Mostly because in the car world I’m a ford guy and I wanted to tell my Chevy buddy’s I got a camaro. Other then the fact they used gloss clear over everything it’s just missing the front of the tank.

It’s ready to ride. 26x2.125 on the rear because the other tire was highlighted in paint marker. No fenders and the sprocket/crankset that was supposed to be on the mbbo bike before i decided to go 5 speed and the ever important fresh grease for everything . Now to decide if I keep it

I was a diehard GM fan as a kid... I had a Nova, a Chevelle, a Monte Carlo, couple of Cutlasses, et cetera. Then after grown-up life and kids and jobs and putting fun cars on the back burner, the keys to a 2014 Mustang convertible fell in my lap for cheap. It's by far the most fun car I've ever had, even with just the little V6. If you can't get yourself in trouble with 305 horsepower, you're not trying hard enough.
 
Murray, and AMF both made banana bikes with similar style frames, the rear dropouts are different.
edit: second guessing myself here, I don't remember for sure, could have been Ross or Huffy instead of AMF.

I believe it is Murray based on the dropouts and chain ring. The one pictured is a ‘68 Eliminator F5. Sometimes lesser models used that same frame as well. The chainguard is not from an Eliminator, as far I know.
