Here's a picture of the shifter setup. It's a 3 speed, based off of the factory setup that came on the stock chopper bikes.

It's in 3rd gear as it sits in the picture. The cable runs from the bottom of the shifter arm (like the shifter on 1968-73 Schwinn Stingray Krate bicycles) through some casing and a couple of small brackets on the frame. The rear hub has internal gearing for the 3 speeds. To shift into second and first, pull the shifter back one or two notches. This pulls the cable out of the center of the hub from the side, which changes the gears.

This setup goes back to the 1960s (at least) Schwinn 3 speed Stingray bicycles.

Here is a picture of the classic bike I modeled the chopper after, this is my 1969 Schwinn Apple Krate 5-speed. I'm currently restoring this one.

When you compare both, you will see the similarities. Color, seat, frame shape, shifter, etc.

Thanks for all the nice comments guys.

Those Schwinn choppers look cool but the first time I seen one in the store I knew it would be hard to ride as you can't stand up and pedal. I see kids around town and when the other kids are pedaling up a hill the chopper kid has to get off and push it. Did the parents give it no thought at all? It just begs for a motor.
