    May make a couple substitutions in there but shouldn't be too far off. :wink:

    I did manage to clean out the rear hub last night and ended up breaking the shifter rod, replacement on the way.

    It's a locking brake lever, I just need it to pull on the toggle enough to switch gears, the spring in the hub will hold tension on the cable keeping it "locked" in place. (Fingers crossed of course)

    The rail adapter is a bmx thing I believe. It is kind of limited in adjustment though so if its a fancy angled post you might be pushing your luck on the seat angle.

    Looks like you have everything you need! A couple of hours in the workshop putting it together and you should be done. What are you going to do for the remaining 3 months? :wink:

    done for tonight ... will finish grinding off whats left of the chain guard tabs tomorrow, and mess with the cables tomorrow probably. I think I'm going to weld the old c/g tab to the frame stander and bolt the coaster arm to it. The duct tape will come out later though :wink:
