well some of the older bikes have freewheels, which means you need a bmx freewheel not SS kit, also the gears on older bikes don't work so well sometimes

or make it SS, use the smaller cog on the front and get a SS kit or bmx freewheel on the back, may need a half link or 2 in the chain to get the right tension

apart from the BB hight it pretty much rides like a track bike, its great!

the Peugeot carbolite frames are great, build solid and the goemtry is pretty good, building one my self but semi-restoring as a road bike instead, raleighs also good, my friend has one, got it for £30, then in total spent £120, lucky he got it so cheap though(thanks to me )

yeah if you can find a good old road frame they can be just as good, just take more work, my guerciotti is great, tight geometry like a track bike but just has a lower BB which can be annoying
