Can anyone tell me if this is a Hercules or a Coventry Eagle or what? It was my dad’s bike as a youth. He must’ve acquired it used in Detroit in the 40s.
I’d like to restore it but I don’t know what it is.
I can’t seem to find the logo or head badge posted anywhere. Any ideas?
I came across an older Prince. Need some advice on if its worth restoring.
Not trying to do a full factory style rebuild. Kind of want to clear coat the bike as is and keep its patina. I domt know much about the bike though.

I have been trying to remove the enclosed chain guard on my 1953 Churchill / Hercules and it has me baffled.
In an effort to tweak the crank to keep it from rubbing the chain guard I figured the best way is to remove the guard. Thing is I can't figure out how it come apart. Looks like the seam...
I picked these up today and would lile any information on them. The first is a New Departure RX. Had no idea they made a fixie hub. What years were these used? It's mounted on a Dunlop 26x1 1/4 wheel but seems older.
Next is a Musselman Olympic Racer front hub. It is mounted on a...
Got this frame a few months ago from Craigslist. An early 60's Nottingham Hercules apparently. I actually resisted it for weeks, because of too much time on bikes, but for $20 I thought "What the Herk". I had some 27" 3 speed coaster wheels from an 80's World Tourist, and the bars are from...
I found an old and rusty Hercules Bike from the 60´s I presume. I repair almost the entire bike but I’m struggling with the brakes system.
English is not my native language but I will try to explain myself, so please forgive me any mistakes. Doing the best I can here with all the...
I have $175.00 in this bike, which is more than I would usually put in an old English 3 speed, but this one has some features I haven't seen before. From what I've found on the internet, I think it's a Hercules Kestrel, and the date on the hub is 1951. It needs a lot of detail work, but I did...
Don't know a lot about these but seems to be all there and in good shape, other than the cage for the small bearing in the drive end is damaged
Sprocket looks new.
Nickel not too bad
$150 obo shipped

Found the left mate to my right pedal in similar condition. Now I'd like to find NOS replacement blocks with the RUDGE name and maybe an end cap (still missing one).
For a 1953 Rudge Sport 3-speed.
