I would have said, check the archives but that is a sore point just now.

So once and for everyone; check the casing of the rear 3 speed hub where you will find some punched in letters, such as AG AW or similar, now look for the numerals marked likewise. This should give you figures such as 11 62 thus indicating the age of the hub as November 1962. The hub is likely to be original and the bike is about the same age as its hub. Therefore you can roughly age a sturmey archer equipped bicycle from its hub.

Matthew - hub hub hoorah!
And through all, I had a ball.
