Sears IGH hubs, trying to find specs


My wife picked this up from a neighbor, she just wanted the basket for the garden bike decoration.

Shifter is missing, cottered cranks, headbadge says Sears and is surrounded by Sears And Roebuck And Co Made In Austria.
The rear hub is stamped Sears Hub Model 50321 3-Speed..

Im probably just going to remove the basket, see if the tires/tubes hold air, then pass it along or swap it off.

Does anyone know of a website showing the date codes for these hubs? Im guessing late 60s to mid 70s

Using this as a learning opportunity for myself in case i come across one that fits me better.

It's probably a hub licensed by sturmey archer. Those are cool bikes for sure.

There was an Austrian 3 speed hub under the Styria brand that was re-branded and used on a lot of American chain store bicycles made by Puch.

Thanks. I like the wing nut too, but I broke a few of those when I was younger while trying to tighten them (probably due to the wrench or stick I was using for leverage against the wings, oops).

It's pretty much compatible with the Sturmey Archer AW hub, except for maybe a few internal parts. You can get a S-A shifter to go with it.
