I have a hub that you can change from RHD to LHD without any extra parts, and I was wondering if somebody could tell me how to do it? etc. Do i just take off the sprocket and cranks and out it on the other side, and switch around the tire? Please tell me how my eastern hub says I can switch for right hand drive to left hand drive without any extra parts! SO HOW? thanks alot

your cranks are going to have to be LHD compatible

so basically what you need is LHD compatible cranks
LHD hub
and your going to need a chain breaker to switch the chain to the other side.

from the posts you have made, you seem to be a complete retard. its a little complicated if you haven't taken apart a hub before. take it to your shop to get it done so you don't fuck anything up or lose pieces

ok just switch ur cranks and sprocket around and then break (not break but take apart) ur chain and put it on the other side and switch ur pawls around but dont loose any.
to switch ur pawls around take off ur driver, hopefully u know how, then be very careful and switch the pawls around.
