I always wanted a copper-tone 3 speed Manta Ray so I made one.
Did you recover the seat I assume? Where did you buy the cover kit?
I am making some custom manta ray seats, need cover material!

The stripe on your seat is so well centered... [ not even considering the grain] no one would ever accept it as original material! This bike is nicely done!
I wonder why Schwinn limited the color selections on the Manta Rays. Copper tone looks awesome on a Manta!
Yes I recovered the seat. Actually the black naugahyde came from our local fabric store and I stenciled the stripe using vinyl spray paint. Total cost was about $15 not including the ridiculous price I paid for the seat pan!!!
Thanks for all of the compliments!!!
Excellent work you must be an artist ...Did you make the number inside the shifter a 3 instead of a 5 too? What is your phone number I'm in Columbus too
Well I don't know about an artist but thanks for the compliment. I just enjoy bringing some new life back into these old bikes so they can keep going. Actually, that's an NOS 3-speed shifter with the "3" on top.
