Bought this interesting Worksman from a friend over the weekend. There was some discussion about the bike on the Worksman Cycles Owners Facebook Group and Wayne Sosin, current President of Worksman said that it was a rare bike that they didn't make many of. An inventor from Louisiana had created the Kik Shift bike transmission in 1980 and Worksman took a chance on using it on a few of their bikes. He said that they even had a radio jingle back then to promote the new gearing system. Well, unfortunately the nylon gear in my set up was a bit stripped and that kept it from shifting gears when you kicked back so I decided to convert the bike into a single speed for now since I really liked the frame and fork.
