    Shimano 3 speed coaster hub cable replacement.

    Hello,
    I have an old Miami Sun tricycle I'm working on. It has a Shimano 3 speed hub with coaster brake. The trike has been stretched and the shifter mounted by the seat rather than on the handle bars. Basically, I tried to shorten the cable length without fully understanding how the shifter works ( I know now). The cable housing has built in ends that attach to the shifter and the hub. One of these ends is now disconnected, because I cut it. How could I go about replacing or fixing this problem? Are these cables still sold?

    yes , ask at your LBS ,
    in many cases Shimano copied the Sturmey Archer hubs.

    kind of a no brainer, make some spare parts interchangeable.. given
    Sturmey started making IG hubs 100 years ago, so had a long time to set a precedent.

    Your local bike shop should stock a replacement barrel for the end of the cable.
    It attaches with it's own nut and bolt.
    If you can't find one, let me know. We have hundreds of 'em.
