I would advise to sell complete. Post some pics and we could give you an idea of the value. Some sturmey archer hubs can fetch a high price if it is something rare, old and unusual but most likely you have an AW hub, they are not worth very much, possibly a tenner if in very good condition, a bit more if built into a decent, unrusted rim.

some people seem to ask oddly high prices for rather basic old bike parts like this seller: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/VINTAGE-HUMBER-BICYCLE

don't be misled, this is not what this stuff is worth.

Restore it.

I remember these as a kid, dates from the early 1970s. Badged as the Raleigh Hustler too. Takes me back. I love that colour combination.

Keep the same colour scheme. It works.
