I have my mind set on rebuilding this bike.
Figured you would get a kick out of this. Should be a fun bike to mess around on when it's finished.
I just tore it apart last weekend and now this weekend I got everything sanded, primed, and some painted.
I got the forks, headset, frame, seat clamp, and some other thing primed.
And I got the swing arm and handle bars (not shown) painted.
Here's some pics so far.


Ordered Parts List:
Bottom Bracket - TruVativ Howitzer Team BB
Crankset - SS TruVativ Hussefelt 170mm
Tires - DMR Motos
Seat - Demolition D1 - orange
Break Levers - Poverty Freestyle Levers
Grips - Pro Taper Pillow Tops
-Half Link Chain
-SS kit
Maybe Ordering:
-New Pedals
-Seat Clamp
-Headset
-Handle Bars

yeah, i know.
i dont have disc brakes right now and probably wont for a while. so i have to run the regular brakes.
I did forget to grind off the derailer cable guides on the swing arm, though. ):<
im so pissed at myself...
i guess they'll go when i get some disc brakes, too.

yeah, the stem and forks are pretty burly... haha.
im purchasing new forks, stem, and bars.
no, its not a department store bike. i got it back in 02 and never rode it.
and ill be mostly using it to ride on the jumps with.
the jumps are overly huge or anything even close to zach's dirt jumps. 15' is the biggest jump.
lol.
anyway,
it's a Schwinn Mesa DS
but it did come with pretty good components.
such as truvativ bb and crankset, i forgot who made the stem and bars, Ride-something
it came with Rock Shox, i dont know any department store bikes that come with rock shox..
