New List member Bob Hillery sent me a photo of his odd freewheel set-up.

Apparently someone attached the 4-prong driver from a Sturmey-Archer 3-speed hub as well as the ball bearing cage and S-A axle cone onto the back of a 5-speed freewheel, This unit is now stuck out the back of the freewheel.

Anyone know for sure how to remove this? I assume, clamp the driver in a vise and then use a freewheel extractor and unscrew it counter-clockwise. But, I've never done a Sheldon Brown style rig like this before. Heck, I never would have guessed it had compatible threads! Wouldn't want Bob to destroy anything because of my bad advice.

Here is a Sturmey-Archer diagram showing those parts.
