    Been restoring Mustang & Cushman scooters. and now have taken on a OCC Stingray Chopper. Not being familiar with geared bicycle's, I'm wondering how to install a 5 gear rear cluster, along with a axle mounted derailleur, without having to spread the frame, and install a longer axle to mount the derailleur, and still keep the large 4" rear wheel. Or maybe that's how its done. It seems to me, I ran across posts on this forum about people converting the chopper to rear gears. My acetylene welder tanks are full and I just placed my 3 jaw chuck back on the lathe, so tell me the story. The bikes got a 80cc (?) motor and jack shaft already in place, and I thought it would be fun to have a shifter. Please help this blind man see the light.......Byron:grin5:
