Retro for sure...... not too many 26 inch wheel bikes around these days.

Side note: a friend of mine has just finished building a Thomas Hellreigal replica Centurion.

Better not chain that up to a street post, you may come back to find it surrounded by flowers, it looks alot like a ghost bike

Screw on cluster, or cassette?

I finally gave up and had to get a new wheel when it became too difficult to source a good lightweight cluster. At least the 1986 friction shifter I originally used on a 6 speed wheel can still work on a 2015 10 speed wheel.

Its an 8 speed cassette , but I have some good Sachs 8 speed freewheels that would have done the job too
