1967 Robin Hood w/ Sturmey Archer 5 speed
 
Bike was in a barn for decades. I thoroughly cleaned it up and overhauled bearings two years ago. Everything works well. It's green, with some rust on the fenders but frame rust-free. 20" C-to-C seat tube. 26 x 1 3/8 rims, 32 hole front and 40 hole rear.

The Sturmey Archer 5-speed is its most unique feature. It is a 3-speed with the addition of a pushrod into the left side, which selects normal or wide range for the 3-speed's 1st and 3rd gear. 2nd gear is the same whether the pushrod is tight or loose. The bike came with top-tube mounted shift levers, one broken. I installed an SA 3-speed trigger on the right side of the handlebar and a friction lever on the left. Except for those shifters and cables, new tires, a longer seat post, and a new cotter pin, the bike is original.

Your thoughts on what it's worth?

(I am sorry but I haven't been able to figure out how to post pictures here.)

I've tried several times, dweenk, to no avail, but thanks for trying to help.

Success! Nice looking Robin Hood - the paint and decals are in good condition. It appears that a more modern shifter is working the bell crank. BTW I like that color.

That's a very nice bike. Not sure what they go for. But, that one is definitely in above average condition for it's age.

Another bike that should be ridden in Minneapolis in September. The All British Cycling Event and Gentleman's Tour
Someone there should be interested and it sounds like a fun ride!
