this is my drag racing bike. It is made by an old sting-ray I found.(bought for 15$ for parts) and a old 10 speed my family member gave me. How I came to building this well its a funny story. I was just wondering around looking for something to do. I had that old 10 speed on the rack and the sting ray in parts on the shelf and I was like PUT THOSE TOGETHER!! and then it was born. please rate-comment-subscribe if you have any questions e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Starting Out
take the forks of of the ten speed. this includes taking of the handle bars. When you have the handles off take the shifters off and set them aside. We'll need them later. Next once you have the handle bars off take off the forks. take off the big bolt with a plumber wrench or any other big wrench. once your down to the bolt you take off with your hand make sure you take the little safety spacer off because like the smart one I am I wasted an hour trying to get it off then found that stupid thing had to come off first. take the forks off and save the bearings we'll also need those later. set that aside now lets move to #2
Step 2: Getting the Forks From the Sting-ray
sorry but there's a Internet picture I had this done before I started this. But to take the forks off its a matter of taking off the bolts for the neck piece. Don't loose the handle bars because we'll need them for this. once you get them off lets go back to the 10 speed
Step 3: Putting It Together
putting it together is the easy step first take the old bearing from the 10 speed an put them on the neck of the sting-ray. then put the neck on the 10 speed frame. once you have that put the bolt back on the neck put the handle bars back on. then take the shifters I put them about 6 inches away from the seat post. then make sure its all tight and have fun riding you new drag bike!
Step 4: Extra Things I Did
here is what I made it in to. instead of a car battery I used two drill battery's. It. It works all the same and its about 30 pounds lighter with out the car battery. I added a high and low beam switch for the head light so its the light switch and below that the high and low beam. the other pictures of the head light on one I had the flash on (camera) the other was off
