A picture is worth a thousand words. The only thing ya cant see is that I took a threaded pipe, notched it out where the sprocket bolts went, and welded the rest directly to the sprocket. Then just spun on the freewheel. The second pic is how I did the pedal assembly. What ya can't see in this one is that I had to use a spring tensioner( an old derailer) on the pedal chain to compensate for the movement of the rear suspension.
And OH YEAH, The pedals aren't really for pedaling, They came off a 12" bike and they work, but their mainly just to make it legal.
