General Information
Fitchel & Sachs Torpedo 3 speed hub. Forerunner to Sachs and SRAM. Very, very well made hub. This one has a 19 tooth cog and can be interchanged with SA.  In 1962 Fichtel & Sachs introduced two new 3-Gear-hubs: Model 515 with coaster brake and this Model, No. 415 without. Contary to their forerunner model No. 55 (from which also a version with and without brake has been marketed) these models were fitted with a red shifter that allowed an idle running between second and third gear (marked with a triangular sign). Only in the first years of production these hubs were built with grease nipples. In Germany this model No. 415 wasn't as popular as the brake-fitted No. 515. It had more the function of an export model.
