Not sure what you mean by the splined bit
The suntour freewheel is screw-on
My set up was a friction rear mech and shifters and worked a treat
All in all a nice cheap set,ready to roll
Just let meknow

Sorry Malc, I'm an MTB man really - does it show ;)

What I meant, was will a Suntour cassette fit on a Shimano freehub and vice versa. I know that campy & shimano are different, although I have since gathered this is down to spacing.

Sounds like what you have will be fine, I'll get back to you ASAP.

EDIT - I see what you mean now, I was thinking of a splined freehub, I see you have screw on freewheel. Like I say, I'm new to retro roadie stuff!

Malc, thanks for the offer, but I've had a change of thought - sorry to be a pain!!

I've got a useable rear wheel, so for now the money is probably better spent on a reasonable front wheel, rather than a cheap wheelset. Then I can sort a matching rear as & when.

I'll start a new thread so as not to get confused in this one.
