While working on my Vista Torino 500 in the build off, forum member KJV posted pics of a Torino 300 he saw at a swap meet. He was kind enough to pick it up for me and then also send it. Turned out to be a pretty nice original bike sold by the original owner. Long gone was everything that made it a three speed and the Vista S7 front and rear wheels. I used some Araya wheels from a later Torino. I laced up the Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub on the rear. Put caliper brakes and levers back on it. Worked out the fender problem and located the correct shifter for it. It rides nice and solid and I love the brown color.
