I'm watching some wheels on e-bay as described in the title.Would a 6 speed freewheel be easy interchangeable and then used on these wheels on a bike with 126mm spacing?Woops I mean MA2 wheels.

If it's 126mm spacing a 6-speed freewheel should be fine. At worst, the smallest cog might be very close to the dropout and interfere with shifting. If you run into this problem, you usually can just move a spacer from the non-drive side of the axle to the drive side and re-dish the wheel.

Well all, I've given up on the idea of old wheels and bought some new Mavic Open Sports(rims) on line with the intention of building my wheels up in the future.Thanks for your input.
