Thanks for the vote.
I looked through the catalogues and this was the closest match that I found as well.
I can't find any serial # cipher but someone knows...
WC1885...
The tyres are made in Canada Dunlops.
The hubs are stamped Hercules and I'll examine the remains of the saddle
for any clues.
The listing states gold and red striping
The red is there.
I'll look for evidence of the gold.
I'm sure is was quite impressive when it was new.
