    I have just gotten my hands on amid 70's or so Peugeot. As a pretty accomplished rec-wrench I know how to do most any work on newer bikes, but have run into a few problems.

    1. I dont have the 23.15mm Stronglight crank arm removers (But at least I know that I dont have the right tool)
    And..
    2. What size freewheel remover will take off a Maillard 5sp freewheel? I looked at Park Tool's website and could not find anything!

    Please advise...:confused:

    Can't say with certainty on your particular one, but I know that some older Sachs-Maillard freewheels
    could use the same two notch removal tools as Suntour's (e.g. Park FR-2)
    see:

    But I also know that a lot of people (such As Sheldon Brown) say that it is very easy to trash the two-prong style freewheel if the tools are not aligned properly
