Chopped Murray

P1020484
« 1 of 15 »

This is a Murray cruiser frame that I’ve chopped a little.
I cut out the top tube and seat tube. I then used the top tube as the seat tube and positioned it farther back than the original. I replaced the top tube with Conduit I bent with a higher arc. I originally built this bike in 2006. I decided to give it a make-over and to try a faux patina finish on it using what paints I had on hand. Also changed out the bars, seat, sprocket and pedals, fenders. It’s been through several re-incarnations.

Tall Bike Test Ride

Just came across and uploaded some old photos of Nova, myself and 2 friends Dan & Tom test riding the tall bike we built back in 2003.

Chopped Sears 24 inch


Was looking on here for this photo to post somewhere else and found that I had never posted it here. Chopped the frame of this 24″ Sears and extended some forks. This was a short lived project from a couple of years ago that never made it any farther than this.

3rd swing bike I’ve built.

3rd Swing Bike

I was supposed to be hauling off some of the scrap bikes and tubing I’ve got stashed around but while digging through my scrap tubing box I got sidetracked and instead built another swing bike. I don’t need another swing bike. I guess when I found the 2 head/down tubes from the girls bikes I couldn’t resist. Used the rear triangle off of the tandem MTB I made years ago.

Ugliest Bike Rides Again


Couldn”t decide what to ride on tonight”s Pub Pedal so in the few minutes I had between getting home from work and leaving for the ride I decided to drag the “Ugliest Bike” frame down from the attic and build it up.

Edit: This bike later became the Bike Of Frankenstein.
