Here is the situation...my neighbor , who my son watches their dog at times, NOW wants to know if this bike has any collector Value. I explained to him that it might have if it wasn't painted pepto-bismal pink and made into lawn art. There is an aisle in Walmart full of Lawn art bikes.I had seen the bike prior to being molested in their garage. It was grey, "Made in England" on the top bar and "Armstrong" along the down tube .I thought it might be a Raleigh want to be.
I'm only giving it a 1962 date, due to the date on the Sturmey Archer hub, I know theses can be changed out.
There is not much about Armstrong bicycle models on the internet. The"camel-back models I did see were single speed coasters.
Basically , what I'm saying is that I don't know jack about these bikes. And the only reason I asking if it is worth something, then I'm sure Ill be doing the refurbish work on it if my neighbor feels the need.
