    Shimano 333 Repair Kits

    I have recently come across 6 (six) Shimano 3 speed hub complete rebuild kits USA PAT 3021728
    There are a total of 31 individually wrapped parts and the entire kit comes in a blue plastic case.
    Part Numbers:
    521, FA-1, FB-1, S-5, 124, 134, 139, 104, 140, 105, S-2, 107, 213, 214, 208, 141, 206, 217, 218, 219, 142, 211, 546, 101, 120, 122, 126/527, 126/543, 531, 530 & 551 with multiple quantities of each.
    Are the kits worth anything and what would my best avenue be to advertise?
    Cheers, -billS

    That's a funky find. Shimano 3-speed hubs aren't nearly as popular or as sought after (whether new or to repair) as Sturmey Archer, so I don't think value would be very high. As far as marketplace, there's a big online auction site you might try.

    That is a very interesting find! The 333 hub has always been considered a disposable hub...mainly due to lack of parts. I would put a couple on ebay and see what happens.

    Regardless, I wouldn't throw them away. If nothing else, they deserve to be preserved somehow.

    Do you know the approximate date of the parts? I might possibly be interested.

    Thanks for the help. If any of you want to see them, they're on eBay. Regards, -billS

    I've never found a broken 333, or 3CC hub for that matter. I have the latter laced to a rhyno lite rim. I need to build a bike with that wheel set. I do have that old Miyata City Runner frame, hmmm....,,,,BD

    I have one 333 go south. My biggest beef is trying to get parts like shifters, I have no luck finding them on ebay or in the back rooms of LBSes.

    That is the problem...a lot of shifters on the bikes I get are broken, so I rob one off of another bike, now I have two hubs and only one ridable bike. At least with SA I can still buy shifters. I have at least 4-5 3CC hubs still mounted in decent wheels, but no shifters to use if I want them on a bike...kind of frustrating. I have tried using an SA shifter but the cable draw isn't the same...at least I think that is what the problem is.

    Not sure what happened, a couple of years ago there were dozens of Shimano three speed shifters on ebay. I bought a few NOS ones back then. What's broken on the shifters? It's a flat spring, holes, and a ball bearing? The twist shifters will work on any of the Shimano hubs. I bought one of those NOS a couple of years ago too?,,,,BD

    Thanks for the links...any Giant built Schwinn 3 speed 1979? on. Typically Collegiates I have had several of those pass thru my hands on the way to others.

    Usually the plastic housing and quite often the lever. Apparently the early ones were mostly metal and the later ones are mostly plastic.

    Yes. I have one too, if anybody is interested.
    When in doubt, style it out.
