Rampar 1027 right? I think that was the low end of the rampar line. Should be fine.
The freewheel cluster should be a thread on suntour, you should easily be able to take it off and thread on a BMX freewheel. You might have to re-dish/re-space the rear wheel though.
Is the Sugino three pin similar to the TA 3pin? Is it a square taper or cottered crank? If it's cottered, I would ditch it. Get yourself an inexpesive BB and a new set of cranks. You could probably find a cheap set of road doubles and just convert them. If you use a road BB, you can just flip the spindle and put the shorter end on the drive side.
You can get NOS shimano UN series BB for $10. You can probably get a freewheel for $20, and if you dig a bit, you can find an old set of cranks on the cheap. I found a set of tourneys for $3 at a swap meet, they converted fine.
BTW, throw some promenade or flipped north on that thing and go townie style.
