"FrankenMurray" Modern build on an old school frame! BREAKLESS!!

Why would I do this? Because I could! See, the Murray frames have a headtube with a 34mm inside dimension. The same dimension as an 1 1/8" threadless forked frame and standard cups. This is the same frame as my other posting. The parts are all leftover and reused items from the garage. The gearing needs a 9T - 3/8" hub, displayed with a 25-15T setup. Just thought it would be fun to build a newer Trail/Park bike out of an old school frame. I did use some other old school parts like the slammed quilted rail seat and Odyssey clamp, the 1-piece cranks and BB, and the Araya hoops. This "FrankenMurray" build includes:

1981 Team Murray "Track Certified" steel frame (flat white paint)

Odyssey CROMO 1 1/8" threadless fork with Hex top bolt (raw)

Aheadset SE-1 1 1/8" threadless (black)

Ashtabula style 165mm chrome 1-piece crank

DK PC 1/2" pedals (cyan blue)

KMC 410 1/2" x 1/8" chain (Neon green)

Araya rims 36H front - 48H rear (powdered white)

Diamondback loose bearing hubs (black ano)

AC 15T freewheel

Black ano nipples
