Who needed Helicomatic parts (xpost from General)?cory

Somebody posted here a few weeks ago looking for parts for a Maillard Helicomatic freewheel. I thought I had some but couldn't find them. Cleaning the garage today I found the stash, which I'll send free to anybody who promises to reimburse me for the postage. Here's what I've got:
1 five-speed freewheel, lots of miles but sounds OK.
2 retaining rings.
1 ring wrench (flat stamped thing, kind of cool but you don't really need it--you can use pliers).
1 700C rear wheel for the freewheel, Mavic MA40 rim, I think Wheelsmith spokes but I don't remember.
1 27-inch rear wheel, also fits the five-speed. Can't remember what kind of rim, but it's a stout touring wheel.
I don't want to throw it away, and selling it on e-bay's a hassle. If you need any or all, let me know and I'll box it up. You can e-mail me direct at
