I need a better one:wink: don't really want a 7spd as it'll mess the indexing up.
But has anyone got anything :?:

6 speed are become scarce. You can however turn the individual sprockets around to prolong their life. Your best bet though is probably to convert to 7 if you are not looking at an original refurb build.

You'll need a 7 speed cassette, body and shifters none of which should be too hard to find (you can adapt a modern 9 speed cassette to 7)

Already turned the sprockets around :wink:
If any body has a good 7 cheap let me know!
or if anybody has a Shimano HG/UG freehub the ones that take both!!
Shifters too!!

Hi forcutty, not sure how your knees are but I have a 6 speed 13,15,16,17,18,19 cassette, fairly sure it's uniglide.

The top 5 sprockets are combined, then a spacer, then the last cog screws onto the external thread on the free hub.

It's been buried with its hub, FH-1050, 36 hole and the freehub feels ok.

No axle or bearings but the surfaces look ok and the cogs don't look worn at all.
£5 plus post, got a shock with 1st class recorded last time !

pm me your address if you want it sent.

if the 15-19 part is a bit small, you can separate the cluster by unscrewing the 3 pins holding it together. Then, using your existing spacers, replace the bigger ones from the ad below and re-jig the order of the ones you have. Hope it makes sense. Apologies if you already knew this...

I don't think they will fit the old 6 speed UG body.
