Hercules Tourist Bicycle Help Please
Please help me with resources to identify fair market value of Hercules (made in England) bicycle. I can send pictures. The gear control with H, N, L indicates patent 661889. It has a Miller light system. The rear hub indicates it is a Hercules and "B Type 5", it has Dunlop Champion tires made in Great Britian. The seat indicates Hercules as does several other places on the bike - decals?. It is red and appears to also have original red grips on handles.
Thanks, we are interested in selling the bike.
Sorry I cant give you any info on value, but my first bike was a Hercules made in the 1930s. It was a black 1 speed, with stirrup brakes worked by rods and bell-cranks.
Try posting in the Classic and Vintage forum.
