Glad to hear this kit should fit the La Jolla, I think its a great looking bike.

What is an extra wide pedal crank, and where can I get it? Or is this something I have to modify?

Not too worried about the manifold, I plan to go all out eventually and see how far I can modify for more performance.

The only thing I am kinda worried about is stopping, with only a rear coaster brake. What are my options for adding a front brake?
