I have a mid 70's stingray with a Sturmey-Archer 3-speed shifter/hub. The rear hub needs oil. What type or grade/weight oil should be used in this hub ?

I would use plain Singer Sewing Machine lubricant, or you could take the hub apart (laing out the pieces in the same order) and repack it.

you can also use 2 cycle motor oil

I have a Sears Screamer 1 that I am considering selling. It is in great condition. No work done on this bike. All original-paint, decals, everything. Has the original Sears Drag Slick tire--very sharp. Everyone loves this bike. No rust--rode for a few weeks only. Chrome perfect because was kept with a fine lightweight oil to prevent rust or tarnish. Does anyone know what this bike might go for?

do you still have the screamer? If so are you still selling it?

I have recently acquired a Huffy girls "Shamrock" bike. I believe it is from the early 70s, but am unsure. It is lime green with a banana seat. Any information would be appreciated. Also: Is there any way to check the year by serial number on a huffy? Thanks, Scott

For the serial number see the Huffy serial number chart under this site's General Resources section.
