Royal Nord President circa 1967

About two years ago, I was picking up some boxes of parts at a fellow collectors shop when he showed my friend and I a three speed he had picked up in Daytona Fla twenty years earlier. I was intriqued and took some pictures and offered him $200 on the spot. He said he wasn't really ready to sell so we let it go. A couple of days ago he called to chat and say he was moving some of his bikes and was I still interested? Hmm, what to do? We settled on a price closer to $300 and I will have to wait for better weather to go and get it. Made in Belgium, this Royal Nord President was made by a company better known for its motorcycles it seems. Brampton 3 speed and shifter is English and a close relative to Sturmey Archer. I love the marbleized paint and flowy chainguard. Here hoping it is mechanically sound. Here are some pictures from that day 2 years ago.
