WANTED:   Hand Grips posted by: Patrick on 5/28/2007 at 2:30:17 PM
Just putting in a note; I am looking for some grips for an English bike; I've seen the kind of grips before, they are less than 4 inches long, maybe 3 and a half inches and do not really have ribs in them. the handle itself is almost reminiscent of a Roman or Greek pillar if that is understandable with columnar type indentations.

Just adding in, I will gladly pay a fair value for them. Used is fine.

Seems to me this came up in the Roadster group a year or two ago and someone was making repros. I suggest searching the discussion archive of the three-speed gurus.

The bike is in great shape, some of the chrome is pitted and there is a little paint missing on the top right side of the front fork. I'm sure it will be a great project bike for someone. I'm not sure of the value, so I'll entertain offers.

The early ones, pre-war, had the shifter mounted on the top tube. After 1960, according to Sheldon Brown, they were part of the Raleigh conglomerate and would have had Sturmey gears when the Hercules-made ones ran out. The Hercules hub used a threaded driver, which Sheldon says is prized for making hybrid gearing.
