    Congratulations on restoring a proper English 3 speed.
    I hope it rides straight and true.
    I recommend a hocky-stick chain guard to keep your pant-leg from getting greasy.

    Nice bike!
    It must have been a 10-speed originally, right? With the double chain-ring?

    It seemed like a version of the "tweed ride" without being so precious, and the bikes were neat and utilitarian.
