Got a Bike co-op to go work on it there?

You may need hands on help, not a bunch of people arguing online as to whats "best"

drop by the library and check out some bike repair books .

tear it down , have it painted and put it back together is probably custom enough..

maybe change the size of the 2 sprockets to make that ratio just right.
