Yeah, you need to add a 6mm spacer to the right side of the axle to gain the extra width for the 6-spd freewheel. In addition to the frame-spreading and dropout alignment, you'll also need to re-dish the wheel to recentre the rim between the locknut faces. But you'll also be able to use 7-spd freewheels as well.
