Thanks to all the guys that gave me advice and help I appreciate it a lot. I learned a lot through this build, and managed to keep it within my budget of $350.

Cool. Only thing is, my Pake chainring was worse than Biopace. Might be worth planning on getting a better ring sometime in the near future. The cranks themselves seem fine.

I'd get some foot retention, probably not a big deal since you have a brake, but trust me, it's a lot more fun with foot retention. It might be a pain in the ass at first, but after about a week it rules.
You can get some plastic clips and nylon straps for probably $10, if you decide you like it, which you probably will, you can upgrade as you see fit, personally, I just bought these http://cgi.ebay.com/Comet-Synthetic-Suede-Leather-Laminated-Toe-Straps_W0QQitemZ170372306823QQcmdZViewItemQQptZCycling_Parts_Accessories?hash=item27aafb1787 and use the nylons plus those as doubles on plastic double gate clips.
