French freewheel

HI All, this is my first post and I live in Australia. I have a 1960's Follis and its Durax freewheel has finally died. Its impossible to get a french 34.7mm threaded freewheel in Australia, and I noticed a thread on french freewheels on this forum from a couple of months ago. Does anyone have a french freewheel they might consider selling or trading for me. or suggest who where I can obtain one? The local bike shops all give me a blank look and then recommend I put a modern wheel/hub on, but I want to keep this one original. cheers John1 Adelaide, South Australia.

Living in france, I have a few boxes of french freewheels.

I don't have a 4 speed close to hand, but there's many many 5 and 6's.
Let me know the model your after and I will have a hunt.

Shipping to aus is expensive, 28euros for a tracked pack for a 1kg.

I once made a thread about my visit to a closed old bikeshop.
Unfortunatly I didn't have the funds to buy anything, but the stacks of NOS freewheels were tempting
