Subject: [CR]Freewheel remover conundrum: a Regina EXTRA (Italian) and a J. MOYNES (sp. ??) freewheel (French ??)

Hi CR listees, I have two freewheels that I'm having difficulty removing....one is a REGINA EXTRA and the second was found on my 1958 HELYETT SPECIALE and the freewheel appears to have a script name J MOYNES. All I can read on the freewheel of the old 1958 HELYETT SPECIALE is J.MOYNES or something to that effect. I have about twenty freewheel remover tools and none come close. Any ideas or suggestions of what I need or who to check with in the Washington DC area ? I guess I may have to make a run by MEL PINTO IMPORTS since he originally sold the bicycle when he first opened up for business in 1958. Believe it or not,he (Mel Pinto) new the color of the bicycle and the model year,of my HELYETT SPECIALE when I asked him about it,a month ago! Pretty good memory for a fifty year old bicycle that the man sold over fifty years ago!!! I'm glad I started early on getting this HELYETT SPECIALE project underway, well before CIRQUE 2008! I plan to show this in it's all original splendor in Wayne's new time frame for the Cirque Concourse. It will be fully rideable also by the time of Cirque 2008! Thanks for any help or leads!
