Wow, it looks barely ridden. And Sunbeam is a brand not often seen, at least here on Long Island. Nice find, and even with the pump!!

My guess on year is very early 60's, but of course the hub will tell the tale. 1961?...

you'll find the history of this bike tied with the history of BSA, acquired by BSA in 1943, and separated from the motorcycle business in 1953

they were acquired by Raleigh in 1957 - may have been made in to the early 60s, but no specific information.
I would be trying to date this bike to between 1953-57, before Raleigh bought BSA/Sunbeam bicycles.
Though the Made in England script sure matches Raleigh script.
Must be one of the rarest headbadges out there.

The four foil bands on the seat tube are consistent with many Raleigh contract builds done for the U.S. market, such as those for AMF.

The Raleigh experts will likely know a launch year for their use...

Right - it's a Raleigh-made 3-speed light roadster with the Sunbeam badge. The four bands usually mean an AMF bike sent to the US. The bikes have the Sunbeam badge but are unrelated to the original, pre-Raleigh merger Sunbeam.
