hello everyone. i just bought a 1965 mountaineer in pretty decent shape and have a few questions. it starts right up with just a few kicks but runs a bit rough. i have the manual but it leaves many questions unanswered.

1) the high/low gear selector on the left side handle bar shuts off the bike when put in "1". works fine in "0" and "2". is there a trick or is it broke?

2) rear sprocket...how do i change to street (smaller) sprocket?

3) fuel mixture... is the standard 40:1 mixture okay?

it seems to be in decent shape. the speedo does not work. or at least not very well. and the speedo light if there even is one doesnt work. brakes need adjustment and chain needs to be replaced, but other than that it seems to be a pretty good buy.

if anyone out there still has one of these please help. :)
