Aging Vintage Drum Brakes

Hi All

I am workin on a tandem restoration and want to try and determine age of Drum Brakes.

On the front is a Sturmey Archer BF6 (inside the unit it also show the serial LB 103).

On the rear is a Cyklbrake but I have been unable to (yet) find a serial number.

See pictures below.

I have done some digging around for various catalogues on V-CC site etc but so far not found any definitive dates for these units.

Thanks for any help

Andy

Your front hub is likely from 1936
