    For your project, you might try to find a green machine. It already has the freewheel.

    I want to see if I can get a 29" wheel under it so I am gonna have to spoke it. They make drift hubs with the freewheel built in, but they are like $80, so to the parts pile I go... I was just hoping someone was building a sick custom one and could use it with some sweet old square taper cranks... Maybe I shoud hop in.. :rofl:
