Royal Standard

I am trying to identify the maker of a mens "english racer" The badges read "RoyaL Standard" "made in England." It has a 3 speed BSA hub and shifts from the handle grip. Generator front hub. It was originally purchased in the US around 1955. Any thoughts?

Bikes are okay, I guess.

I owned that bike new in the 50s and put hundreds of miles on it. To include my first Boy Scout 50 miler. Mine did not have a generator hub but rather a generator which was driven by the tire. The shifter was a three speed thumb shifter connected to three speed rear hub. My bike was black. If I remember correctly Royal Standard was the English manufacturer. Purchased in Birmingham AL at a bike shop. My first of many lightweights over the years.
