Sears Steyr 3 speed

Picked up this three speed bike yesterday for $20. According to the date code on the Sachs hub, it's a 1969. Not in bad shape. Anybody have any experience with these?

They're not as nice as most of the English three-speeds, but they are OK. You can't beat it for $20. Who knows, maybe you'll get a lifetime of service out of it.

Those baskets are useful but heavy.
