WTB - 7sp Freewheel and Brake Set

Hi all -

I'm putting the finishing touches on a 1984 Guerciotti GLX and am looking for the aforementioned items.

Looking for a modern 7 speed freewheel instead. Thanks all!

I'm also seeking an appropriate set of non-aero brake levers and recessed calipers as well. Similar to the above, I'd love to outfit the bike with either Record or Super Record, but due to the likely high cost of such components I'm more than happy to consider any and all alternatives. I'd prefer something in similar styling like Superbe, early Dura-Ace, or any of the higher-end brakesets from the other Italian makers at the time (Gipiemme, Galli, Modolo). I'm fairly unfamiliar with any of the other European offerings at the time, but I'd also gladly consider those if anyone has anything that wouldn't look to out of place.

Feel free to PM me or reply here with anything you have available.

Thanks!

Nutted or recessed brake calipers?
Aero or non-aero levers?

Do yourself a favor and drop $12 on a shimano freewheel. The modern ones shift much better.

@wrk101 @icepick_trotsky I'll take both of your advice and seek out a modern 7-speed freewheel instead. I'm not a fan of the black ring I've generally seen on the Shimano freewheels which lead me to look for something more vintage to begin with. I see that Sunrace makes some cheap and all silver freewheels, any idea on the quality of those in comparison to Shimano?

very nice product, too. They're just an unbranded shimano copy.

IRD freewheels are not cheap but you may want to look at them.

If you google around a bit, the reviews on sunrace freewheels seem to be mixed but they're certainly priced right.

Sorry, should have included that in the original post. Thank you for pointing that out!

I'm looking for recessed brake calipers and non-aero levers.

I have an almost NOS 7 speed Dura-ace freewheel taking up space in my parts bin. I say almost NOS because I think I mounted it once and switched back to a freehub on that bike after a week (been a few years and I don't remember why).
