    WOW! Those are sick! You have a terrific eye and talented hands my friend!

    That Fuji, Suburban and Murray are crazy! Just so happens I am heading out today to pick up a 71' Suburban 3speed! I know the direction I will be taking it! :mrgreen:

    Thanks Snydur and Oneuglybike.

    I forgot to mention, but it should be said that the black version of the Suburban was built by my good friend Dan. He got it from me as you see it in the middle picture. The bike is now known as Kevin Bacon (hence the grip tape & bacon strip in spokes :D )

    Thanks Wino. Stock pedals/crank. The 65t sprocket came from a Schwinn dx900 exercise bike.
