    I’m in the middle of restoring a 1939 Phillips Roadster. I need a new freewheel, the original is a French made item, the rim is Dunlop but I can’t yet see any name on the hub as its probably under many layers of paint.
    Would I be safe in assuming that I need a French 1.366″x25.4 tpi freewheel rather than an English one (1.370″x24)?

    I also need a single spoke and nipple for the same wheel. I guess I just measure one of the others to get the size i need?

    Any clues as to where I might get the freewheel from?


    An english thread freewheel should be easily to hand; if that doesn’t fit, it should be safe to assume it’s a french thread.
    I think I’d be searching e-bay for that sort of thing.
    Spoke length should be a simple case of measure one and buy the same.
    Retrobike is a better place to ask old skool questions if you haven’t already.
