I've refurbished and found new homes for more English 3 speeds than I can remember. I've had a special love for them ever since I inherited my grandfather's Rudge in 1960. (at 12 years old)
At 6-3 even the bigger frames were always a problem. DL-1 Tourist being the exception, but they are so ponderous that I lost interest. More fun to look at than to ride.

Picked this oddball up a few weeks ago and it's almost done but likely finishing touches will be in the spring. Unusual 1977 Sprite 3 speed. (AW hub 76 12)
25" frame makes it for me if a touch short. Maybe this will stick around for a while!
