5 Speed Cassette

edited May 2010 in MTB general
So I am cleaning up an old bike, its probably around the same age as I am, and it still has its original 5 speed cassette on it. The teeth are pretty blunt, or square, so that definitely needs to be replaced. So far I haven't been able to find one online, do you guys know if companies still make 5 speed cassettes?

    most likely to be a freewheel not a cassette.

    Either way, are there companies that make either of them in 5 speed? I've checked a bunch of online stores and they haven't had anything smaller than 7.

    yes 5 speed freewheels are available.

    but most likely LBS time, we have a few in boxes.

    After a little harder looking and more specific googles searches I found a site that has both a freewheel and a cassette. But first I need to figure out which one it is on the bike and than check the LBS.

    Asked my mom how old the bike is, apparently I am only a year older than it, so about 18 years with out any parts being replaced.
