How about another UK bike. This is a nondescript Hercules 10-Speed sent in by Barry M.
Year unknown, probably late 60’s. Serial number 279990
I bought this for $9 years ago at a thrift store. All there except the handlebar tape and seat. All steel, even the handlebar stem. I swapped out the drop bars for uprights, but kept the original drop bars and stem. If anyone can date my 10 speed, I’d appreciate it.
