    Re: Murray Cruiser

    Have you ever checked out about the two remaining movie cars owned by Martin Sanchez (Moochie Chaser) and Bill Gibson (Camero killer) cars?




    Dang that is a nice bike and great work, it would be cool if I can make mine a three speed with an automatic push button like on the real cars but I like to have it without any cables on it messing with the lines of the bike which is part of why I don't like multi speed bikes with all those cables but I do have some like that but need their cables fixing like the rear brake on my Raleigh folder.

    New Bottom Bracket, now I need a white seat that I am looking at a more local one but I don't know if it will be a regular or Banana seat, red paint and a few more things.



    Sorry axsepul about not getting the decal yet, it might the last thing I will get for this bike of which there are a few more things left.

    I got the Spectra red but I would have to mix it with hardener and what ever since tyhe only place that has it all put in already and have it put into a spray can is too far away but I never done that before so I don't know whenever I feel good enough to do that yet.

    If you need any parts, this looks like the one I am doing also, so if you want any of the stuff I am not using, let me know. Same color too.
    Unnamed first build.

    Chainguard, kickstand, stem, handelbars.

    Looks great, I have this 94 Monterey and two others a 1996 Santa Cruz and a 86 Monterey frame, fork and a few other things with it.


    I have every part except already except for a white seat that I can't afford to get for awhile unless the guy that had intrest in my 86 gets it.

    Re: Murray Cruiser

    I'm almost finished, I need a white seat and she needs to be painted but I wished I knew someone closer to me could help me paint my Christine bike since I don't think I can do it right on something that will have different colors side by side.

    When I am done I will try to reveal her in a video like a movie trailer instead of pictures first done just like the Christine movie trailer, I will be using every word that was in the trailer except I will use 1994 Murray Monterey and not 1958 Plymouth Fury.

    Better pics of the sprocket.

    A better pic of my repop V for real 58 Plymouths on the hood of my RCErtl diecast of Christine that has real working headlights.

    Re: Murray Cruiser

    Unfortunately I have stopped until I can get it painted but I'm not sure about painting it myself because I don't want to end up buying more of the Spectra Red that I payed a little more than I thought I would since I had to pay for the hardener & so on, plus I haven't painted three colors before so I I think I will hopefully find someone close to me to paint it for me.


    I am still looking for a white seat but everywhere I see one is either to high for my low of a budget or credit card & Paypal, I have seen some here too but about time I have the money their gone.


    Yeah they have some good stuff there and the place I got my sprocket said it was a Murray not a Mercury but technically it is since Murray Ohio made them.

    Re: Murray Cruiser

    My white seat came in today so all that is left is for me to find a place that can paint my Christine for me then I will be done with this project.

    Pictures are in the link above this post but I might take some of my own later.

    Re: Murray Cruiser

    I have a set back on the wheels I got for her, months ago I had to put the wheels on another bike so I could pawn it but not for the $10 which wouldn't have helped out so I brought it back home then I left it outside but after a month or was it two but anyways the wheels had heavy rust on them so I cleaned them but now some of the cheap Chinese chrome is off in spots so now I have a few black spots.

    Re: Murray Cruiser

    I got these two pieces today to be able to put the V on but even though they have a hole in the middle I have to drill two holes beside it to put the parts to screw in that are a part of the V that is usually used to screw the V into the center grille piece.


    I got two in case I mess up one of them unless I can buy a 58 center grille piece at a price that I can actually afford then I can just screw that part into both of the new parts I just got then screw in the V into that.

    Here is the back of the V.

    Update: I still haven't got her painted yet which I hope to do when I sell off enough stuff to pay someone to paint it for me.
