Does this freewheel really exist?

Reading the list of parts that were original on my '78 Paramount P13, it list a Regina 14-16-18-21-24 gold colored freewheel with a 42/52 chain ring setup. I've got the 42/52 Campagnolo NR chain rings but in 4 months I have yet to find a gold colored Regina 14-16-18-21-24 freewheel. I can do without it but I thought it would be nice if I could find one.

I'd say your best bet for finding a good one for your Paramount in that specific gearing would be to build one up with NOS cogs.

I might have one--- but--- it had a warped cog, so it is replaced with a silver one--- which matches your username--- sort of. Let me know if you are interested.

Let me know which cog is warped. I may have a few gold Regina cogs here.

52-42/14-16-18-21-24 was extremely popular gearing until 6-speed freewheels became popular. If I recall correctly, one could order a Paramount w/ 52-49 / 14-16-18-23-26, which provides an awkward jump in the worst possible part of the range.

I do not worry about stock gearing on any of my bikes, instead choosing chainring and freewheel sizes which fit my needs.

I'm heading to Miami tomorrow and will see Kurt and Mike on Sunday. I'll take the Regina I have along and Kurt and I will try to match up an all gold set of cogs for you. The one thing to keep in mind is the patina on my gold cogs will probably not match the patina on Kurt's replacement cog. Hopefully from a distance with a chain wrapped around one you won't be able to tell.

The patina will not matter as much. I will be content to have the correct freewheel.

Thanks

Kurt and I tried to rebuild my Regina freewheel with a new gold cog, but with no luck. There are so many different types of Regina cogs, the chances of us being able to find a replacement, were slim at best.

The Regina Oro in that gearing does show up from time to time on ebay, but they're kind of scarce so go for a lot when NOS. Here's one, which is all wrong on the bike it is shown mounted on in this pic, but I still can't part with it. I'd never be able to replace it for what I paid for this one, which I think was twenty eight bucks way back when.
