AGE / VALUE:   Identify my Hercules posted by: Chris Holt on 10/25/2005 at 9:39:40 PM
I need some help in identifying the age of my Hercules. There is the number 257904 stamped into the drive side chain stay drop out, with no other identifying marks. The rear hub is manufactured by Hercules and stamped "B Type 4". The bike has cable pull brakes and a handlebar mounted shifter also manufactured by Hercules. They appear to be Sturmey Archer parts, but with Hercules identifying badges.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The B type four means that is is a real Hercules made bike before the Raleigh take over. This is a quality hub.

ENGLISH ROADSTERS:   triumph posted by: russ gray on 10/25/2005 at 3:42:28 AM
Over this last weekend I picked up a 68 triumph mens bike at a garage sale for 25.00. The bike is in near perfect cont. with a few scratches on the rear fender. It looks like it has not been ridden but a few times. The lady I bought it from says its been in her back room for the past 35 yrs. All orginal. I'm just wondering if this is a bike I should hang on to or let the kids ride it.

Sounds like a nice find! Depending on the riding habits of the kids, I suppose.... but IMHO (and this is a denizen of Britbike Afficionados, hence I'm sure I'm not alone in my thinking), I would certainly hang on to it for myself! ;-)

Cheers!

It's likely to appreciate hugely in value so if your kids think it's cool, let them ride it. It will last a long time with proper care...you can't say that about todays common bikes.

Or like Larry, keep it for yourself if you want to ride it.

Nice... Very sold looking bike. Elegant. All set out. What's not to like, except for frame size, rim size and price... Thanks for the inspiration.
Aloha
