Can't wait to see it!
I think I'd go with the twist shift over the stick shift on the top tube, if you know what I mean.
One of the bike of my youth was a stingray, or what passed for a stingray, it was a 20 inch wheel frame, with a big sissy bar, banana seat, and a set of ape hangers. I had a slick for the rear tire. One day I decided to iinprove the 'style' and coolness of my bike. I put a 16 inch wheel on the front. I was styling, crusing down the street, Mr. Cool. Then I decided to pull off one my signature wheelies. I lifted the front wheel, and watched in horror as it bounced down the street without me. Yes, I became very intimate with the pavement that day. Of course this was way before there where such things a bicycle helmets, let alone laws that say stupid kids that don't tighten the front wheels enough have to wear one. I was only unconsious in the street for a few minutes before I got up not knowing what day it was. Bent my fork too.
I learned two lessons that day, always make sure your nuts are tight, and pavement is hard.
