It is a sturmey archer 3 speed asc hub(fixed).A friend of mine has placed this on ebay for me as I am quite financially embarassed at the moment.Would love to hear from any other old gits about cycling memories.Ps.From the age of 12 I was a fully paid up member of the cyclists touring club uk.CTC.

    "Old gits"??? None of those around here. I'm 61 and cycling keeps me young.

    What part of UK are you in? I used to live in S Devon and Bristol. I am going to Uk later this month but dont expect to do much cycling except pulling my grand daughter in a trailer around the Greenwich/Bromley area.
