With much thought, petition, and heartache I have decided to build my beloved 1976 Murray Skybolt for this year's illustrious Rat Rod Bike Build-Off. Now, why would someone call a mid 70s Murray a "beloved" bike. Right now I'm asking myself the same question, but then I remember the hook. This bike was given to me and through this website within just a short time of posting this "Fresh Find" I learned that this bike is a 1976. That's the hook. I have older bikes, newer bikes, nicer bikes, crappier bikes, and some bikes more suited for this contest, but this is the only bike I have that is the same age as myself. We are both turning 35 this year, and though I get cleaned up and dressed up almost daily, this bike hasn't had the same good fortune, so 2011 is it's year. I want to thank RRB.com for making this an open competition. I feel like a man among giants as I build, and though I feel like I'm the one that needs it, I wish everyone luck and happiness during this contest and beyond. This 76er is going to build this 76er. As found: As last seen: Did you know that in 1976 the United States celebrated it's bicentennial? In celebration they released a special quarter and the Murray Skybolt.
