Holy Whitewalls ‘n All! Here is update on Barry M’s 1960s Hercules 10-Speed posted last year. Nice Work Barry!
1960’s, year can’t be determined exactly.
no model name from what I can tell.
Here’s my Hercules again, only now it has been returned to original, as much as possible. I left the original paint alone, just cleaned it up, along with the Sturmey Archer wheels. The tires, seat, handlebar tape, and cables aren’t original, everything else is. Everything metal is steel except for the original brake levers. I put the drop bars back on and added white tires. The pedals don’t use bearings, I have never seen that before. There is no slop in any of the bearings on this bike, it was ridden many miles, as can be seen from the paint, but mechanically it is sound.
