Hi Don

Funny. I just pulled a freewheel last night off for a good cleaning that turned out to be all-gold. It's marked NWN (which I presumed meant "New Winner")... from a Lotus Odyssey wheel. Wide ratio 6-speed with a rather low top end.

It's going back on the wheel it came off (Sunshine Pro-Am + Araya red label), so not for sale but I can get you a pic if'n to the extent that you're curious.
