Create a build off diary here for your DFBO bike.
I found this Murray at a garage sale today, for $30. I talked them down to $22 and bought it.
I'm thinking black, I'd like to do a coaster brake, but I'll probably keep the deraileur, make it a five speed with ape hangers and a banana seat. I may have a rat trap springer fork somewhere........
I wet sanded the frame after I tore everything apart.
Once painted, it's looking better.
I relaced the rear wheel tonight to install a coaster brake off a kid's bike. This was my first hub swap/relacing of a wheel, and I'm pretty stoked after doing it. I used Sheldon Brown's page as a guide. http://www.sheldonbrown.com/wheelbuild.html#lacing
I also found the rat trap springer front fork, and put it on. I'm going to have to fabricate a spacer to make it work, but it fits OK.

I am picking up a Bike Tomorrow that has a Springer like that,
