I have been restoring some older Sturmey Archer Internals. I currently have two historic hub gear internals ready to fit AB or AG hubs.
Sturmey Archer Internals Can Be Date Matched
Pre 2000 A-series internals are interchangeable. A 1990s internal can fit into 1940s hub shell and will still work perfectly. However, if you are restoring an old bicycle it is nice to have your gear internal date matched and authentic with the rest of the bike. I can accurately date match internal parts to the date on your Sturmey Archer shell making your 3-speed hub accurate and genuine.
These older internals are uncommon and usually take a lot of work to restore to “almost as new” condition. Date matched Sturmey Archer Internals are therefore quite a bit more expensive than a standard “off the shelf” internal. I do of course always try to keep prices reasonable and affordable.
Over the next few weeks I will be restoring several more Sturmey Archer Internals from various periods. These will include internals for AW, AT, AG and AB hubs. They will be available at prices starting at £50.
Unmatched internals are also available.
