Child's Two Speed Internal Gear With Coaster Brake
 
Has anyone heard of a child's bike with a two speed internal gear and a coaster brake? A friend of mine had one back in the late 1970s. It was one of those bikes with the banana seat and high rise handlebars. It had a two speed internal gear with a coaster brake: click the pedals back to change gears, hold them back to stop. I don't imagine a person would be able to find one nowadays, but does anyone know what kind of bike that would have been?

Don't know what kind of bike it came on but Sturmey Archer has a new 2 speed kickback hub in several models... the vintage hub was probably a Bendix.

Awesome!! Thank you!! I looked up the Bendix hub and already found some older bikes for sale.
