    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.
