Default back in the day...

As the title suggests, back around 1965 I built a great motorbike from an old Schwinn frame and a 1.5 Briggs engine. There was a guy in town who would take your 3 speed hub wheel and make up a double sprocket for # 35 chain. With a belt clutch on the engine shaft down to a jack shaft and over to the drive chain, with the gears and all, that bike was the bomb. I would like to somehow make another one. Is this the place to re-learn how to do that? Is there a better way to go now? I've got 2 vintage Briggs engines to start with. Thanks
