Another Austrian Sears 3 speed: Worth a darn or not?
Found another Austrian Sears ladies bike, fairly old by the look of it. Black paint, EA3 rims, and a three speed hub that states "SEARS Model # 305.21 - 3 SPEED Made in Austria" . Now, I know Sears didn't make the hub, as they outsourced alot of their stuff and had the manufacturer inscribe SEARS on it. But what has me stumped is what brand hub it is. I didn't know Austria made hubs. It is a chain pull type of actuation (like Sachs or Sturmey-Archer), and it has deep grooves in it.
I don't need another bike, and I really don't have any room for it. Plus, it is a fairly rusty. But if that hub is any good, I'd grab it for the $15 they were asking and cram the bike somewhere. Just didn't want to toss $15 out the window for something that's really not worth anything. What to do?
