Well since Outlaw twisted my arm,I guess I'll do a klunker. The frame was actually gonna be something else but since I was bored I said "f it! why not."

Here is the bike i am working with

The seafoam green is stunning! And I'd go for the middle fork, or the one on the left, but that grey one's got a bit more "downhillandthebrakesdon'twork"-look. :D

It would if it wasn't a skip-tooth.
Except someone on here made a skiptooth 2 speed.
They used a Huret derailer that used round wheels as pullys, instead of those with teeth, and the back two gears of an old freewheel. I guess that some used skiptooth sprockets on the very largest, because when it is that large, there isn't a need for all of the teeth, and they wanted to drop weight, which is funny because those were some of the heaviest freeewheels.

i added that skiptooth a few months ago for another type of build but I am no gonna use it for this one.
