I need someones help!

I have a bike that I am currently working on but After days on end of research I just can not figure it out. Can someone refer me to someone or give me some tips?

Welcome to the forum.

A tad more specificity is somewhat necessary for solutions to be offered.
Such as, "what is the problem?"

Hmmmmmmmm? You must think we are incredible mind readers!!!!!!

First, another welcome to BF-C&V.

Buuuuuuuutttttttttt! We need more clues, such as: any decals or labels on the frame? Can you post pictures? How many sprockets/cogs on the back wheel? How many sprockets/cog on the arm attached to the pedals?

Helps us out a bit more!!!!!! Please!!!!!

I am still a bit skeptical, but here is another post that the OP made. Perhaps this is the subject of the inquiry?
