1954 Rudge Sports Tourist
A neighbor who cleans out estates dropped by yesterday with a Rudge 3 speed, dyno hubbed bike that appears to be mostly original. On pump peg is broken off, and the dry battery pack is gone (if they had those in the US)
The wires to the (what appears to be original) lights are just hanging near the rear hub. Will I be able to hook these directly to the dyno hub, or is the pack a necessary component? Any hints or 'how to's' floating out there? I've never run across an old dyno hub yet.
No pictures of the actual, very filthy bike yet, but it appears to be this, taken from a blog by James in Portland:
Also, is there a source for keys for the locking fork, or is that hopeless? For those interested, the date on the SA is 8-54, not as old as me!
