Tearing down one of the Tenax Super Sports with full 600 SIS. I had ordered a new 6 speed freewheel to be proactive.

Stupid to say, but I can't remember where I put the rear wheel, did these take freewheels or was it an early cassette system?

If the parts are marked "600 SIS", I'm guessing it's 6208: VeloBase.com - Component: Shimano RD-6208, 600EX (SIS)

That era of parts would work with either a 6-speed freewheel or cassette, but 6-speed Uniglide cassettes are much harder to come by these days than freewheels.

That is indeed it, and I have the matching hubs. So I'm hoping it's not a Uniglide mounted on it lol

I did more googling, hubs came in both FW and Cassette with the same model designation. I have a FW which I'm glad for. On with the restoration.
