Finally got a 24" Speedster, womens bike to use as a donor for the build. Over the next week I will take pictures of what I am starting with, the teardown and what will be used to build up the clone Manta Ray.
Working on tearing down and making a list of what I might need to wrap it up. I will need new tires and tubes for sure. Bought seat, seat mount, handlebars, and a few more items. Going to assemble first and ride, then decide if I want to do a total repaint or not. The donor bike was a 3 speed and the handle bar mount shift was not in very good shape. Might consider doing a top bar mount shifter.
