    Freewheel spacers

    Is there a source for freewheel spacers, I need some spacers but can't seem to find any.
    I don't do vintage, I bought them new, rode them, kept them. Now they are just old bikes

    I have some for Sachs (Maillard) or Sun Tour. If you need either you can email me by going to the Chain-L site (don't PM me here). Another source might be Yellow Jersey in Madison, and if you search for vintage freewheels, you might find other sources.

    do you mean the spacers between the cogs on a thread-on freewheel, or a spacer that will set the entire freewheel assembly further out on the hub?

    i ask this because the former can be very freewheel specific whereas the latter are pretty generic.

    I am looking for the ones that set the entire freewheel further out on hub.

    you can use the shimano 10 spd ones that go behind the cassette about ~1mm thickness. also bb spacers 2.5mm. i know i collect them and hand them out as needed. i like it when they have food in there hand when walking in, not necessary but preferred. hint hint

    Well, that's easy. They're cheap and readily available in several thicknesses:
