I’ll be starting a new build later in the year

...or rather re-starting.
I got this 50’s frame and I got a tank for it (see attached) but the standard Chinese engine didn’t fit well so I went with another frame.
I’m planning on doing a 4 stroke on the red bike. I got a bunch of shimano parts on eBay that includes a nexus 8 rear hub and a dynamo front hub. Both with roller brakes. Can I use this rear hub with a shift kit? Will the dynamo blow out a lamp at a certain speed?
I’m going to have to learn how to build wheels now I guess. Any help with that would be great especially with the measurements.
