    Sweet Sports. The rear hubs usually have the date stamped in them. One or two digit month. Two digit year.

    Looks like it needs some shift cable work.

    Even the cranks? I haven't had good luck with reinstalling cottered cranks. Gotta get a cotter press goin' on one of these days.

    I've never been able to successfully uninstall cottered cranks and still salvage the cranks/bottom bracket.

    Power drills and hack saws usually come out.

    Yikes. I've been lucky with extraction thus far, but suck going the other way.

    Looks like a 70s vintage LTD or Sports. Better pictures would help. Nice bike for commuting. Check out this thread for more.

    Classic & Vintage subforum would be a better place to ask about this bike.

    That broken shifter chain assembly is cheap--find a bike shop that's been around for a while and they'll likely have that and correct shifter cables/housing in stock. Don't be afraid to get into the hub if you need to. A bit complicated, but not overly so.

    Nice cafe racer, BTW. Honda 125?
    I know next to nothing. I am frequently wrong.

    The only thing I know about that bike is that it's not single speed or fixed gear.
    So, the bike is in the wrong forum but you'll fit right in.

    I was wondering why it took so long for someone to say that lol.

    You can come back when you want to know what gear ratio for your conversion and how much faster an arrospok will make it
