Seems there are no less than THREE "Greenvilles" in PA:

Greenville, PA, Mercer, US
Greenville, PA, Armstrong, US
Greenville, PA, Clearfield, US

And I'm not in propinquity with any of them, I'm afraid...

Cheers!

Oh well. Anyway, it ain't my specialty either, and I don't feel like restoring it...

Anybody going to have a guess? Poss BSA or maybe even New Hudson? I've never seen a BSA trade bike (cycle truck) but this could be the first I've seen. The geometry looks like Gundle design and Gundle made trade bikes for many years. Its a rare and interesting find.

Matthew - not sure.

Silly me, the chainwheel is almost certainly a Pashley fitment so that might be a good source of manufacturer for this cycle. It would also fit with the age / history. By the way if this one takes your fancy try looking at eBay Item number: 6579276896. Not my auction etcetera etcetera.

More by the way: A Brand new Pashley Roadster will cost you £445 stirling.

Matthew - research pays off.

I did 2 posts in error Just below "age and value" when I was hoping mostly for manufacturer help for the Argyle and maybe age of both or maybe some place with a Hercules serial number list or how to interpret the numbers.

AGE / VALUE:   Argyle girls 3 speed posted by: Spike on 11/15/2005 at 11:27:05 PM
Posting this sepearate from the previously posted Hercules to avoid confusion Also found at a garage sale 3 speed Sturmy archer hub 1955.Head badge gone but Fork tube id tab ,like on Raleighs, says Argyle with a thistle.The serial number is below the left dropout."A 5329".The fenders are very close to those on the Hercules below with similar wire stays and rear fender eyelets above the rear dropouts.It appears the Forks are identical including the crowns, except the Hercules has fender eyelets and Argyle none.It was suggested it could be Philips but no certinty.
Now I wonder if Argyle is related to the Hercules?
Anyone know if Hercules built private brands or cheaper lines?
Thanks, Spike

AGE / VALUE:   Hercules single speed posted by: Spike on 11/15/2005 at 10:51:09 PM
I picked this up at a garage sale.Girls bike single speed.It has a Perry coaster brake rear hub with Perry 40 14 on the hub.The Front hub is I believe marked HR Pattern both hubs have flat top metal oilers.The serial number in above the left drop out. OL 1208 Fenders somewhat resemble Raleigh but a little deeper and slightly more angular with a smaller narrower center ridge and wire stays.The chrome tip is about half the size of a Raleigh.
Head badge says Hercules Windsor, Hercules Cycle and Motor Co. Cp(I think) The tubes have threaded steel stems with the retainer nut. Low miles but poorly stored,rusty.The amazing thing is it appears the rear wheel was never touched only one very clear impression in the paint.Any one have a clue as to age
Thanks, Spike
