Just built this one as a gift for my brother...found the bike in a thrift store, not a high end frame, but it is very low miles w/ nearly perfect paint and the desired long horizontal dropouts. Welded a Shimano freehub body (rear wheel came from another bike) to "fix it" and am running a single cog w/ extra spacers. The cog came from the original cassette, but plan to replace it w/ a BMX cog when I find one, spline pattern is the same from what I've read. Features mismatched wheels, tires, wheel sizes, and inner tube valve types for extra points. Gearing is 52x19 (74 inches)
