Hello, I just bought a 1982 Velo Sport Routier, but broke one of the rear wheel's spokes. The problem is that it is behind the casette. I don't want to go to any bike shops, because they will charge twenty dollars for that. I am a noob in the casette area, so, could anyone please help me, and tell me how do I take it off, and what would I need to take it off with =) . Because I don't want to loose that wheel, its a Weinmann aluminium wheel from Belgium.
Thanx to all

It's likely a freewheel (only Shimano made cassettes in those days and they weren't that popular). You have to determine what kind of FW it is and get the removal tool appropriate for it.
