Sturmey Archer 3sp Hub

A few months ago at an Automotive type swap meet, I acted on impulse and bought this SA AW 3speed hub. The date code is 77. I have never owned a 3 speed and always wanted one as a kid. Now I'm doubting that I will build a bike around it and it is surplus to my needs. I think I paid too much, but I will hold onto that info until I get a few replies.

Well, you can look on your local craislist.org for what 1977 Raleigh Sports and LTD-3 go for, and what Schwinn 3 speeds go for; if you buy one of those you get the SA AW 3 speed hub already laced into a wheel, plus the cable and shifter. A bare hub should be a fraction of the cost of a complete bicycle with the hub.

Thanks folks. I paid $15 for it so I should be able to get that back at least. And it could use a cleaning.

$10 to $15 is about right for a 77 hub.

yea they are not worth much, I have them a laying in every box and every corner of my garage. The best ones have a coaster brake in them. I wouldnt sell one with a coaster brake, you can do a lot of kewl things with it.

Yeah they don't fetch much! But, boy are they reliable once set up! Plus you can obtain replacement bits from multiple sources. Did it come with a shifter and cable parts? The period correct thumb shifters are likewise, bullet proof. The cable run you use (w/pulley and "fulcrum clamp" or full housing run w/ chainstay cable stop) are readily available, too. I would avloid non Sturmey Replacement Shifters, though. They aren't quite as bullet proof.
