I posted about this yesterday in the introduction section as I'd just joined the site. Someone suggested that I should repost here.
I'm trying to find out the age and some information on an early Rudge Whitworth bike that I've had for many years. It's a communter type bike with 26" wheels and a 28inch frame ( measured from the crank to the saddle post ). It has a very unusual chain with links 3/4 inch long. The gear/brake hub has Sturmy Archer Tricoaster Nottingham England stamped on it with the serial number KC69342. This is controlled by a two speed shift lever on the cross member. I've tried researching on several sites including the Sheldon site for Sturmy Archer gear hubs without success. I'm guessing the bike dates back to the 1920's or 30's it's even been suggested that it maybe an old British Police bike. I'm hopping that someone on this site may be able to identify it for me. I know a photo would be handy but having just joined the site I don't know how to include one with a post.
