Regina ORO NOS 5sp 14-27 notch body bsc thread - kinda weird ratio and discoloration. BSC thread and takes a splined remover.  Cogs are 14,16, 20, 22, 27.  This violates a few rules of how we like our freewheel ratios to behave.  But we have bodies, some cogs (and gaps in our inventory), and this is the one that we think weirdly makes some sense.  You have a 14 and 16 which are pretty useful cogs on downhills and flats.  Then you have the 20 and 22 which are kinda nice for some rolling uphills.  Then you get a 27 - which while not the biggest you can get to work with a Campy Nuovo Record, is a touch less fussy to set up than if you did have a 28.  The cogs have discoloration and may not be evenly color matched.  The body wants some lube dripped into it  The photos are representative of the freewheel you will get.  The date code on the body will likely be either late 1970's or 1980.

 

So while there are a lot of "issues" described here, this may be an affordable way to get some gearing onto your vintage bike that is fairly low.  We haven't tried to set one of these up yet so we can't vouch for the shifting.  But there are no really crazy jumps here so our thought is it should work fairly well.  If not let us know.
