Hello All

I found this bike in a shed of a house I brought. I knew the old man said he use to ride it when he was a young man, so that's early 1940's. Looks like a bike from that era, 3 speed Sturmey-Archer. Rods, not cables for any of the controls. Where the badge usually sits, it does say "Flight" I think. I have had a google, but I just get very bling 1950's car influenced bikes.

Any info would be much appreciated. I have included some pics. Sorry about the bad quality, I never know what you can upload to the forum, size and quality properties.

The rear hub will have a date code, assuming its original.
Roadsters like this were made in millions in the 30s. Possibly Hercules, but looks like a Raleigh rear rim.

Looks like a Dyno hub on the front which will also have a date.
