    Welcome to the forum.

    Just a quick glance at your pictures tells me it is probably a 2000-2005 or so model, so not all that vintage per say. My guess is based on the style of the decals. It...

    Sounds as if a spacer was misplaced when you reassembled the freewheel.

    I've cleaned and greased a few hundred freewheels, including about 6-8 of my own. After riding them for over a year or more...

    My money is still on yellowing of the clear coat, which back in '73 was very different from today's clear. Usually when chrome is heated it turns blueish or grey.

    PULL THE TRIGGER! NOW! :eek:

    Probably just yellowing of the old fashioned clear coat used back in the day 40+ years ago. Sometimes you see rust in the BB area of chrome Paramounts, but even that...
