Sears tote cycle
#1
Have an old Sears tote cycle that I'm fixing up. Looks like it was a two or three speed but has no cable or shifter on it. Coaster brake arm has Torpedo Dreigang on it. I'm wanting to get it back to working again.Know nothing about this. I have built motorcycles so I know my way around two wheels. Trying to find out how to hook up a new cable and lever to the rear hub.

we need some close up pictures of both sides of the hub.

from the picture above, the hub does not look big enough to be a 3 speed hub, possibly, it may be a 2 speed kick back hub - which has no provision for a cable.

I'll take some better pics tonight after work. Person I got it from said they thought sure it was a two speed. If it is a kickback hub how do you change gears? I rode it before taking it apart, it is in a tall gear and does brake with the pedal. I assume that is a coaster brake. Thanks for the reply and help.

read the links that I posted above.

I have not ridden a kickback since Jr High School.
