    Are Sachs freewheels Shimano compatible?

    I am thinking about picking up an old Sachs 7 speed freewheel. It will be paired with an old Shimano 600 indexed shifting system.

    I am just wondering if Sachs freewheel spacing is compatible with Shimano?

    Thanks!!

    I'm almost certian 7 speed Sachs, Campy, and Shimano are interchangable.
    Suntour may be a bit different, and everything is interchangable with friction shifters.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    definitively yes.

    I used to train and race on the exact same setup you are suggesting. I even have a Fir Isidis tubular rim built up on a suntour superb pro cartridge bearing hub with a 7spd sachs freewheel on it that I am looking to get rid of. The freewheel has low mileage as the wheel has been hanging in my garage for quite a while. If interested let me know.
