Can a regular Sturmey Archer 3 speed thumb trigger be successfully used
to shift a Sachs Torpedo 3 speed coaster hub?

Thanks in advance
Iestyn.

Yes according to my LBS. They have built up several bikes using that
combination and have had good results. I haven't tried it personally.
Note that these are current S-A shifters and current Sachs hubs. I
don't know about vintage stuff.
