Can anyone ID the hubs that are stamped "HR Pattern, Made in England. I keep running across them."

But a couple of days after first reading this, I looked at the front hub of my "BSA" guess what I found!

Well, if you find the answer, let me know!

ENGLISH ROADSTERS:   Red Roadster? posted by: Bryant on 5/23/2006 at 4:46:36 PM
A friend of mine just emailed me that he picked up a bike at the thrift shop for me. It has 28in wheels and "those rod brakes" that i showed him on my Raleigh Tourist. I can't see it until tomorrow when the thrift store opens. Question is Did Raleigh make a Red Roadster? I thought they were either Black or Brown? If they didn't, do you know of any other Red Roadsters? I won't get much sleep tonight thinking about finding another Roadster. That will make 2 in two weeks after never setting eyes on one for years.

Sounds like an old postie bike.

Nevermind!! Not sure what it is but it was worth the price I paid for it ($0). The rod brakes were the upper portion only, cables the rest of the way (Obivious modification. must have lost/broke original bars and used handlebars with rod brakes to fix) It's a single speed but has a full chain cover, and 700 C wheels, not true 28in. It will be a project to fix up but not worth much to me. Make a good campus bike for someone when I'm done.

Doh! What a find! No letter in the serial number, I don't have it on me, but memorized it as beginning with 373 and then about 3 or 4 more digits.

Green, kind of an olive green, the Raleigh on the chainguard is a lot more antique looking than say a '76 Raleigh Superbe, I know what those look like.

Keeping it! You bet, the back fender is little dinged up, I'll use it and have some special white fenders if I ever need them that have been sitting around, never used, made by Raleigh (or Bluemels, the heron is on them and so is the chrome bullet in front).

Any comment is welcome.

Age?? I'd say it takes up from where the serial number tables leave off; I'm thinking about '69; but perhaps I am wrong.

I would not think it is one of those Dutch or Irish jobbies; seeing that it has the "Made in England" decal.

Thanks! and if you say, check the Sturmey Archer hub, yeh, I've been meaning to do that.

I've gone through so many 3 speeds, this one is rather like a dream; I do like a tire size larger, 27 or 28; but at this point that's not important.

One oddity and I can append it tomorrow, I've got Brooks saddles I can sub in, it definitely has some sort of plastic-vinyl read weather-proof but still comfortable saddle made in Moscow Tennessee, company name ends in I believe with "ox", I don't have it on me.

Thank you in advance.

Last thing, I am adding on, has the nice Raleigh pedals; no reflectors, but the pedal blocks of rubber are so worn down, it is not inconceivable, that the reflectors have fallen off; but I would not assume that.

   RE:MISC:   Lucky Day! Raleigh Sports posted by David on 5/23/2006 at 3:46:05 PM
Troxel saddle? (If so, definitely not original!) The good Raleigh pedals would have the screw-on cap over the adjustable cone and I haven't seen those with reflectors.

   RE:MISC:   Lucky Day! Raleigh Sports posted by Kurt K. on 5/23/2006 at 8:39:41 PM
What color? Can you describe the decals in detail for us?

Take care,
