Coolio's,

I have had this Simplex freewheel for a while and would like to make it complete. It is what I assume a 4 speed freewheel missing it's inner or largest thread on cog. Otherwise it appears in nice condition and it is stamped "Made in Italy". I have partially threaded it onto a standard hub and it engages just right. The cogs are 3/32" (I think?).

Needle in a haystack? I've been looking for nearly a year now and I haven't found much info or in the way of spares to suit. Should I think about cannibalizing other freewheels for the cog needed. I haven't measured up the diameter of the cog needed but can do if it helps ID the size? How do I measure the thread?

I'd be very grateful to sort this one out. Any help, advice or info is appreciated.

Ciao,
