    I believe they do have 12 steps, they just have not got around to working out the last two yet...

    Love it, nice effort! The guard decal tops it off nicely!

    Great styling touches too, the mag sprocket and mag wheel look great together, the lights are sweet, and pipes from the chainguard are killer! Murray should have made them stock that way!

    It's a blast! Unless you gotta go uphill, that's a whole other thing! Front wants to lift up. Only on large hills though. It's fun!

    It screams 70s muscle.

    Great job!

    Thanks guys! One cool thing I noticed while riding earlier, if you slightly tap the kickstand with your heel it hits the cragar cap and sounds like a bell. I wish I could say I designed it to do that, but just a happy coincidence.

    Yeah, this makes 2 purple bikes in my collection. I'd like to find an original paint 69 fastback in purple to match my stardust. Someday.
