Vespa freewheel removal

What’s the best way to remove the freewheel? Manual just says to use a large spanner…shows a pic of an open ended wrench…but I don’t have a wrench near that big. Measures about 37mm! The space is too narrow for an adjustable wrench.

Or this Park Tool freewheel remover wrench:

I used it on my Bravo and it worked well.

Damn….I’ll take $19 over $33…but damn.

Fucking Vespa

Rear brakes are over rated anyway

Re: Vespa freewheel removal

Instead of buying n waiting you can take an angle grinder to make the perfect fit. I started with a husky wrench from HD and ended with a vespa wrench, your gonna have to slim it down as well.

Wack it with a hammer to knock it loose.

You bought a vintage moto, welcome. You're going to have to buy some specialty tools. $30 for a tool you will undoubtedly need over and over is not really a huge investment.

Unless I do something wrong, I better not “need it over and over”.

All I meant was….why the hell isn’t there room for a adjustable or channel lock. But, fuck it….whatever it takes

You'll need it any time you service the transmission, and honestly I remove the trans any time I change the tire, rather than fighting it during install.

Well shit! New brakes and service this weekend (hopefully) and it’ll need new tires very, very soon.

And to think I told my wife these things would be a cheap father/son project…
