By the badge on the headtube, its a Sears branded bike. By the look I'd say mid seventies. The brakes being sidepull (on a lower end model) for me are a hint at a later age.
I'm assuming 27 inch tires and tubes, all readily available. The brakes are similar in design to modern, so brake pads or replacement brakes are no issue.
I'd bet its a Sturmey Archer hub and shifter, 3 speed. You can get replacements. But a local bike shop can take a look.
Many of local bike shops will do a tune up for not much money. That would be a place to start.
