1931 - 1940 Hercules

(Click for full photo)


1931 - 1940 Hercules I picked up this Hercules (made in Birmingham, England) in Stellenbosch, South Africa. It has a top-tube shifter and an undated Sturmey-Archer rear hub. This apparrently means that it was manufactured in 1940/41. Only the seat, pedals and (I suspect) tyres are not original. I found it in a sorry state and have enjoyed cleaning it up, scouring the rust off the chrome parts etc. I use this bike regularly in my meaderings through the picturesque town of Stellenbosch.
