Just picked this up - interesting single tube or hard tire? Lugged like an older TOC bike, morrow hub on the rear with a coned front. Solid bike! I got some info that Raleigh acquired Apollo. Wondering if anyone knows if there is any value to them beyond a wall hanger?

You are on a trail with Raleigh
I’ve never heard about this brand but sometimes there’s a company that made few bike only because the public didn’t like them .
I have a 1951 C.W.S that is very rare in the USA
Hope this helps

Im thinking that was a modification majority of British bikes were 1/2 inch pitch from 1900 on that looks like an american set up 1 piece crank

So what I’m getting the vibe of is that the crank and sprocket where replaced with American parts!?

Well, the one I posted was certainly a Monark style 40's/50's crank, not the original.

This may be badged as an English machine, but that badge may be the only connection with England it has.
American forks, frame, cranks, wheels. Is this a case of a company indulging in a little 'badge engineering' perhaps?
