Oops! Looks like my message part didn't get thru. Never tried this on my phone before.

Looking for more information about this bike.

I was just out at an antique/junk store and saw this beauty!

I don't know much about Sears bikes, but I do know that Sears is gone - all Sears bikes are discontinued.

Not sure what year or model it is. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Sears used quite a number of vendors for their cycles through the years.

This one was manufactured in Austria by Styria/Steyr/Puch of Graz.

It appears to date from near to 1970.

These Steyr frames have one odd dimension it would be good to be aware of in case you do any spanner twistin'.

Their steerers have and O.D. of 26.0mm - sometimes referred to as "austrian size."

This means their headsets are unique and do not interchange with those of others.

Bottom bracket and pedal threads are BSC/ISO.

Hello. Looks like your bike has a 3-speed rear hub that is missing some parts. I see the push-rod sticking out of the end of the axle. Don't lose that. This should be covered by the bell crank and cable connector. You'll also need the shifter and cable and a few other pieces to make it complete. These are hardy nice riding machines once tuned.

I saw a similar bike for sale near me recently, for $30. Shoddy drop bar conversion, but that’s fixable. Thought it would make a nice winter bike, passed when I realized it doesn’t have fenders.

With that push rod in the rear hub it looks like that might be a Shimano 333. I'm thinking that may be a replacement wheel. Seems it would have been either a "Sears " stamped hub or maybe a Sachs Torpedo 3-speed hub. Without the shifter it'll be stuck in third gear making it hard to peddle. Parts are not hard to find to fix that if you wanna make it a rider.

@5782341b77vl Just curious, what is this attached to the front fork. Odometer? Generator? appears to be driven off the front tire.

I'm thinking it's an odometer. Just got it home and wanted to share this. So want to wash it and my 64 Typhoon, if I have time between errands today
