Will you do anything with that Bmx Bike? Others have shoehorned a 7 speed hub int the back wheel.I do not have the answers for you. You should get a lot of answers soon however as modifying R20's has been rather popular in the past on this subforum.

That one looks neat, I'm gonna try to find some white walls for mine somewhere, Right now the biggest pain is grinding the large amounts of rust from the parts lol and getting the bike to open and close easy, It must be old, it sat in rain and snow for a long time, yet the paints alright still.
