HI Everyone,
Wanting help please if you can on this

Rudge Whitworth Gents Bike
Frame No 262944 R
No on hub reads 92-1 england
Nottingham badge on front & coventry badge on back
three speed AW sturmey archer

Surely the bike wasnt made in 1992 as hub says, Im thinking rear wheel has been replaced

So apart from maybe new wheels I think the rest of the bike is 1950's.

Any idea on what its worth,
and exact date

Thank you[/b]

there's nothing in the bike that screams old to me - the seat clamp for example looks modern, likewise the transfers on the frame are on clear plastic film (1950's would have been waterslide with lacquer over).

I suspect it's modern.

Absolutely. That is a cheap modern Rudge, made in India. The attention to detail and quality is not nearly as good as you'd find on a properly old one.

Sorry. :(

Maybe from India, Maybe Modern, if you think Modern was 40 years ago,was bought in England in the 1960's by my Dad and he bought it second hand off his mate.

Maybe you now more than me,

That must make me Modern then being 47 years old (Thats Great)

Thanks for your replys though,

your hub dates it as 1992 - how modern is that for you.

the rest of the bike simply isnt anything special, sorry but thats the way it is.

the BB must have been changed because the lockring is also very modern
