I have other post here on how to modify the pull starter to make it more dependable.
Russell I am not seeing why this system cannot be bump started? If the free wheel 1 is welded. Is it due to the derailer? What am I missing? this is the cleanest set up I've seen, and I have decided to use a jackshaft setup like yours, however, I need to be able to bump start it. Could you please me understand what I need to do to get the 5 speed with jackshaft and still have the ability to bump it.
