    Hello Guys,
    Not sure if this has been discussed. I do have re-pop GreyGhost 5speed.
    My question is. Is is possible to add the original 5 speed to my reproduction Greyghost?
    Will I have a problem widening the rear end? Since mine already have the new 5speed will this be wide enough to put the original 5speed? Hope I made sense.

    Thanks guys

    Anything is possible. What may cause a problem is the derailleur mount. You need to look at your repo and an original to see if they mount the same or not. V/r Shawn

    If I remember correctly the rear drop out spacing needs to be 120mm or 4 3/4" for the 5 speed freewheel. Other than that little detail I don't see why the old derailleur set up wouldn't work.
