Old 6 speed freewheel


Having some problems finding this and hope someone might have a source.

I've got an old '88 Bianchi Grizzly with a Shimano 6 speed freewheel that I need to replace. I ordered one from Nashbar thinking that this is what I need. Wrong.. Mine is an old one. The first cog acts as a locking ring. It has a body like a cassette instead of a freewheel. Anyone know where I can get a new one of these?


Edit: Body looks like this one.
Demented internet tail wagging imbicile.

What you need is a Shimano Uniglide cassette, not a freewheel.
Loose screws will build one up for you.
You know it's going to be a good day when the stem and seatpost come right out.

(looking for a picture and not seeing it? Thank the Photobucket fiasco.PM me and I'll link it up.)

You aren't looking for a freewheel, you are looking for a cassette.

Loose Screws seems to have a couple available... drill down... Click on the Cassette tab, Then select Complete Shimano on the left, then 6 Speed
