    The shaft/bearings/sprockets and freewheel adapter cost $45
    The steel was $7
    I am sure that the items could be purchased cheaper. I have been using this setup for over a year now with no problems.
    The pedals freewheel, a pull is a good option for this setup as you can pedal start but isn't easy. (you cannot bump start).
