Probably will use smaller chainring with the coaster brake hub

This was hauled out of the scrap pile at the transfer station. I haven't been able to find out much about Randor bikes, but this was obviously a cheap dept. store bike. Strange mix of parts though, a lot of them USA origin. Tires are "Mudtrax" made in India. Originally it was 18 speed with Sunrace derailleurs. Freewheel and rear hub were trashed. Decided it would make a nice coaster brake cruiser. Used up some old rattlecans to paint the frame and rims. Re-laced wheels with new spokes. Added the fenders. Most everything else is what came on bike. I need a 1/8" chain because of the cog on the rear hub. After I decide which chainring to use, the unused one will come off. I'm not real happy with the way the clip-on fenders fit, will probably fab some kind of stays for them.
