Sturmey Archer Licensees and Foreign Production
- Per an older item I ran across on the web apparently Steyr of Austria
made an AW clone or licensed copy for some period after WWII. Some
are reported to be stamped "Schwinn Approved" and were used by
Schwinn. Stamped Austria on the hub shell. One reported as on a 1961
Schwinn Corvette. One poster stated parts are interchangeable with
the SA AW hub.
BSA's bicycle division made Sturmey Archer designed hubs for a long
period of time under license.
Sturmey Archer also had a manufacturing facility in Holland at one
time. No idea if markings on the Dutch made hubs were different than
on the English ones. Also no idea if it was an assembly only
operation or a full manufacturing plant.
