It's a 3 speed coaster. Gotta source the shifter and special
Cable as well as some grips.

Three speed coaster ? It may be easier to locate a single speed rear hub for the bike, rather than trying to locate the stem bolt mounted shifter , which if I remember correctly , is slightly rarer than hens teeth ?? The last one I had I sold at billing 2001 (to Darren one stop) and I haven't seen another since :? :D

There have been a few on Ebay recently but the owners obviously have no idea what they fit as they have been advertised as just "Sturmey Archer" 3 speed shifter. Worth keeping an eye out .

She's been round the block a few times, nice to see. Now if you're a REAL Anna Wrack she must have a name by now...
