Or freewheel, as the case may be. It’s shimano but I haven’t seen one like this before.

not hard stuff. i have only one chain whip, but in a pinch took another old chain wrapped it around all the way and vice grips to get a freewheel apart the other day. it was really, really on there, too. cheater bar for the chain whip. if you don't have any whips, you can make one really easy with a drill and bit

I was not so lucky. That thing is ON there. Eventually I decided it didn't need to come off that bad :-D

Thanks, but I'm just going to leave it. There's nothing wrong with it, it just needed a good cleaning. And normally I like to remove the cassette to get the frisbee off, but it's not strictly necessary when they're plastic and brittle like this one. It's looking good now and has no issues, so I'm going to not worry about it. When it dies, I'll take it to the LBS and let them worry about swapping in a hyperglide body. Or I'll do a 700c swap. Either way, I'm happy with it for now.
