I want to turn this bike into a 5 speed stick shift.
Can I use an internal hub?
I can get a custom wheel made?
What about the rear brake?
Room for drive sprocket?
How many spokes?

I would appreceate any help on how to convert this bike to a 5 speed stick shift.
I have no problem buying the parts I need.
Being 'green' I need to know what I need.

Would all of this work on a 1966 Schwinn Fast Back Frame?

Sorry NO PICS YET! I have to wait and so do you. JUNE 15th I start this build.
