Swapping freewheels on '85 Trek 460?

I picked up a cheap Trek 460 in very good shape. I'm planning to order a Sun Race 7 speed freewheel to replace the stock 6 speed freewheel. I have a Park Tool FR-1 freewheel remover, which doesn't fit on the current freewheel. The Trek catalog says it is an Atom hub and an Atom 6 speed freewheel. I'm a little reluctant to purchase another freewheel remover, so I'll probably just take the wheel down to the LBS and ask them to pull the freewheel for me, but is there any reason why a Sun Race 7 sp freewheel wouldn't fit? Also, anyone know which freewheel remover Sun Race uses?

The threads on the hub are standard, so every freewheel fits. I suspect Sunrace uses the modern Shimano splined-style remover. It wouldn't make a whole lot of sense for it to use an older design.
