Finally riding a big boys bike

I have had this bike for over a year now. It is by far my favorite bicycle. Over the past year I have seen two other 1953 Herculels Tourist QE II Coronation Celebration bikes posted on The CABE. So, it is not as rare as I thought it was. It is a fun bike to ride and creates a lot of attention whenever I take it on bike rides. I enjoy adding/changing parts to the bike. Soon I will be mounting a Brooks B66 Brown saddle, brown hand grips and a new old stock Midland Roadster rear carrying rack painted in Flamboyant Red. Sadly, my bike is missing the original decals on the seats down tube. However, all the chrome is in excellent condition!

Currently, I have 3 of these 1953 Hercules bicycles. One I had shipped out from Michigan, one I found 6 miles from my house in California and the third I had shipped out from Rhode Island.

Beautiful bike! The brown B66 looks great on that red frame. If you’re looking to sell the black one, let me know. I’m looking for one for a restoration.

I have a lady’s 3 speed parts bike laying out in barn, if any parts needed, pretty rough stuff?

I am looking for a 1953 Hercules B type 3 rear 3 speed hub. I like to keep things original as possible. Currently, my Hercules bicycle has a B type 2 rear hub on it. I am also interested in a clean set of front and rear hand brake controls with their calipers. Additionally, I am also interested in a dent free chain guard. And lastly, I am interested in a rust and pit free front fork chrome top cover. Please provide photos of the parts I am interested in.

These aren't very common bikes are they?
The bikes with the painted darts are not real common. If they only used this style paint one year and that was nearly 70 years ago you can guess how many have survived...

I understand what 70 years will do to a one year production item
( I collect 1900- 20 record players and records)
