    converting a ten speed to a track bike.

    ok. so i found a fully functional KABUKI SSD ten speed the other day. the tires had dry rot and the pedal crank was a little loose.
    if you were me you'd be in luck, but youre not so you suck.

    whoops, hit TAB SPACE accidentally. ok. so i found the bike and i decided i was gonna convert it to a fixed gear track bike. is there anything i need besides a new crank set and a new back rim? something less obvious? and whats the least expensive way of getting these things?
