Can anyone on the list give any history or general information about Cyclo
freewheels? I recently picked up a "Cyclo - Pans" freewheel kit and I was
wondering if anyone knows much about these things. The kit came in a
zippered blue vinyl pack and consisted of (1) five-speed freewheel body,
spare pawls & springs, bottle of oil, removal tool, instructions and cogs
ranging from 13T - 24T. Cogs in position 1 & 2 thread onto the body and cogs
3, 4 & 5 slide on. The body is six sided where cogs 3, 4 & 5 slide on -
unlike SunTour (and Sachs, etc.) bodies that have splined cogs. The pawls
and springs can be replaced with out disassembling the fw - they can be
accessed by simply removing the cogs from the body. Apparently these kits
were available in 6sp as well as "racing (13-24T)" and "touring(13-32T)"
kits. I have posted a scan of one of the cogs at:
Ill try to get a scan of the instruction sheet soon. My questions are:
1: does anybody have any cogs to fit these bodies or know of any other fw's
that use compatible cogs.
2: During what time period were these "kits" made?
3: Any general information about Cyclo Freewheels ("64" model, etc.)
Many thanks in advance,
