Sears bike (Steyr/Austr-Daimler) in need of an overhaul

State of the Sears bike 3-18-12

Blue 1970s Sears department store bike, made in Austria by Steyr-Daimler-Puch. Steel rims, steel cranks, matching vinyl seat. The red Steyr was like this before it got aluminum cranks, a square-taper BB, and aluminum rims.

It needs:

Hubs overhauled
Sachs 3-speed hub cleaned and oiled (at least)
Fenders bent back into shape

It’s actually not in bad shape; I just haven’t gotten an afternoon to clean it up.
