Howard, Just in case no one else answers, 5 speed spacing was/is 120mm. Some 6 spee d freewheels were made a bit thinner between the cogs, allowing a fit inside a

120mm space. They were known as "Ultra 6" speed, and required specially spaced chains, IIRC.

Standard 6 speed spacing, however, is 126mm. Subsequently, Ultra 7 speeds showed up, fitting within the 126mm space, and then there were standard 7 sp eeds ... but all this drifts off topic.

I would like to ask a terribly naive question, except, of course, if you don 't know the answer, which I don't.Â

What is the rear spacing for the old style 6 speed bikes? I believe the newe r 8, 9, 10 speed are 130 mm.

Best,
