Looking for a Sachs 7spd freewheel in 12-28t form or similar tooth count, max might need to be 28 - I'll have to check the mech I've got in mind.
Ideally in VGC or certainly with plenty of life left.

I'm not familiar with the different LY codes so please feel free to educate me.
It will be destined for a Bullseye hub if that matters?

Thanks :D

Re:

Does it have to be Sachs? I use Sunrace and have never had a problem with them. You can buy them new and cheap on eBay. Compatible with pretty much anything else, just fairly heavy that’s all.

Ah, rats - but thanks for looking.

Reckon you have the bits to compile one? I hadn't considered them as 'buildable'.
I've not forgotten your assistance in the past by the way ;)

I'm working on the basis that Sachs is more period correct (early 90's)?, and they seem well made. I'm not really familiar with Sunrace - are they a modern solution to solve a retro supply problem? Sachs are heavy enough so I doubt there would be much in it. I do have a Sunrace 9 spd cassette so assumed they emerged at the turn of the century/very late 90's.

Re:

No, Sunrace are and old Company. It was their 7-Speed Freewheels I was referring to; that I use. They also do 6-Speed Freewheels. Good luck with finding a solution. :)
