custom training bike made from schwinn world tour frame,about a 22.5 frame 1 pc crank w single 78 tool sprocket,ukai rims, needs to be converted to single speed rear wheel so price is now lower cash thanks for looking bakes not installed but included

I had a friend that made a bike like this back in the late 80's. Front chainring is from a Schwinn exercise bike. He customized a 5 speed freewheel with additional spacers to a 4 speed to accomodate the wider chain required by the chainring, in hopes of being able to gear it low enough to get it going. But even with a 32T cog on the freewheel, the gearing was still too high to pedal anywhere, much less dropping it into the 14T he had on the high end.
