I've been refurbishing vintage bicycles for about 8 months now, and I just finished this one.

It's a 1969 Hercules 3-speed -- it needed a good scrubbing and polishing, as well as a bit of paint work. I took it completely apart, cleaned and serviced everything, re-packed the hubs, headset and bottom bracket, of course new tubes, tires, brake pads and inner brake cables. A few period accessories finished it off.

Definitely makes me want to don my finest Tweeds when I ride it!

I had a 1954 Hercules when I was a Junior in high school. .................lm
