My dad gave me his ten-speed 1979 Schwinn world Sport, it was in pretty bad shape, but I have been fixing it up. It looks great now, and I want to convert it into a single-speed. I found an old gift certificate to my local bike shop for 80 dollars, but they said it would cost over 250 dollars to convert it! I know they are screwing me over, but I am kind of a noob when it comes to bikes. What parts do I need and what is a good estimate in terms of pricing?

Hopefully you can help me out, thanks!
