It looks like you have a three speed. If the rear hub is a Sturmey-Archer, there should be a date on it. Something like "65 3" for March 1965.

Twist grip shifter shows system to be Shimano.

The Shimano 333 three speed hub may be marked with a single letter year code. Suspect bicycle a bit too early for this arrangement which evidently began 1974.

Machine looks to date from mid to late 1960's, thinking 1965-68 time.

We have another Shimano 333 3-speed hub in the forum's current Huffy Sportsman thread. It shows a letter Y which indicates the year of 1974.

Here is a link to the chart showing the letters and their corresponding years:

Alas, no results shown prior to the year 1974. :frowning:

That wasn't an offer to buy either bike. To me they are parts bikes that I trash pick and junk out. Selling bikes is a way to broke more often than make money. Roger
