It probably has a Sturmey-Archer 3-speed hub with a two-digit date code on it. Unless the bike is just like new, it's of no interest to collectors. Ride it.

I forgot to mention its a Folding 20" bike with lights on front and lights built into the rear fenders.All the wires run thru the frame.The tires are whitewalls and are SEMPERIT made in Austria.

What you have there is a 1970's Eatons department store folding bike. Eatons was a very large department store at one time in Canada. These bikes were common in Winnipeg but are hard to find now. The tires would be original as I have seen a few of these bikes. They were not as nice as the Eatons folders made by Raleigh. Still a nice bike to keep. I would assume yours is a single speed. I don't remember seeing a 3 speed before.

Thanx for the info..
Its a single speed and the chrome is a little flaky on fenders but for 40.00 I can't expect show room finishes on everything..At least now I know what I have.

I have worked on and sold about 15 folding bicycles from Europe. I might be able to figure it out by looking at it. Ed

I found the Royal Scot Bicycle made in England and can't find any Information about it the Tire size is 24 X 1 3/8
the only # I found was in the Center of the bike under the Pedals on the Frame # 211
the Rear Sprocket says Risilion and there are about 6 Decals on the Bike that say Royal Scot

Wheel Master is a brand used by some importer for their line of Taiwanese and Chinese products. I doubt that your light set is very old and probably not worth more than about $20 retail. So, don't think of it as a gold mine, but use it instead!
