Here's my opportunity. I have a set of Suntour 7 speed, downtube index shifters, but no matching freewheel and I've read that Suntour 7 sp. is not the identical spacing as Shimano.
A couple months ago, my bike flipping buddy hands me a bunch of left over parts including three MTB rear wheels. I finally got around to looking at them, and one of them has a "Sun Race", 7 speed freewheel. However, instead of stating it was manufactured by Maeda Industries, it says "Roots". It requires a double prong removal tool just like Suntour. Did I get lucky and come across a seven speed Suntour compatible freewheel or is this just another Shimano compatible freewheel. If it is Suntour equivalent, I will mount it on my Fuji Team and redish the rim. But I don't want to go through that effort if it's not the same.
Any help is greatly appreciated.
