Re: Sachs Torpedo 3 speed
- Hi Aaron,
this is a (German) page where you can date your Torpedos: http://www.fahrradsucht.de/produkte/torpedo.php
The dating is done through the letter printed on the hub. It may be on the main body of the hub (Nabenkörper) or on the "brake arm" (Bremsanker). If there are instead transversal marks as in the first figure then select (eingedrückten Nuten).
Type in the letter you found and it will tell you the build year.

> Any idea how to date one of these? I just acquired a pair of Dahon III bikes, one has a Sturmey Archer AW dated 10 87, the other has the Sachs Torpedo, only stamp I can find on it other than the logo is a number 28. I am not exactly sure which hub it is.
