Loking for a 3-4 speed freewheel block for my 50s lightweight build
Keeping it simple for this build,to see out the winter weather riding.
Ratios of about 13-24 / 14-24 /13-25 or similar
What have you kept in a drawer of your shed cupboard,used for TT back in the 50s-60s

Regina would be nice (british threads)

I have some 5-speed TT blocks,maybe a swap deal!!!!
13-17 ratios

Here's hoping to get my project on it's way

I have a 3 speed from the 50's that was my dads, I won't be home until the 2 Jan though. I'll dig it out and post a picture.

Dug it out, but I'm not sure what it is! See pictures below, it seems to be 3 speed fixed???? It has a right hand thread though??

Hi Ian

Thanks for getting back to me with photos
Looking at the front it's a Cyclo 3-Speed
Are you sure it's a fixed.I need a freewheel to be honest
Iv'e counted the gears roughly,14-19 ratios?

Not sure if it's suitable for my project,although i'm quite interested.
I'm basically building a 50s lightweight.which has no decals,but has lovely Nervex Pro lugs.
Fixed set-up will not be suitable for the hilly welsh roads.especially 17-19 tooth with a single 42-46 chainring,too hard.

What sort of dosh would you want for it?

I'll go out to the shed in the morning, get some release oil on it and try it on a wheel to see if I can get it to freewheel.

I also have a Cyclo Benelux 3-4 speed rear deraillieur in good condition for its age.

I will let you know tomorrow how I get on.

Does it a nice movement sound (nice clicking)
To be honest iv'e no idea on price
The project is a low budget winter ride
Give me an idea what you would expect for it.
I can paypal you as a gift if we can have a deal

Yes nice clicking, then noticed the two small sprocket are now unscrewing.
Unscrewed and then realised what I thought was a single speed freewheel with a 21 sprocket is in fact another 3 speed with out the other 2 sprockets attached! I have attached all the sprockets from the shed some fit on the freewheels and some are fixed gear cogs. What about about £35 for the lot plus postage?

So there are 2 3-speed freewheels?
The 21 tooth sprocket is another 3-speed freewheel hub without the 2 smaller rings?
Therfor i could use the 21-speed with the other 2 smaller rings.
Hope this makes sense!!

It's a bit too much spend for my project to be honest
But i will offer you £20 posted for the lot
