Suntour Freewheel

Thought I’d do this as a quick follow up to the Dura Ace freewheel post. These were pretty much the standard freewheel for a few years in the mid-80s. Note the two prong removal tool (they went to a four prong a little later). The cogs were not evenly spaced so you could not use these with index shifters. The bodies were pretty durable, though. I remember having a huge Suntour cog board at Palo Alto bikes where you could make basically any combo you could think of.
