Looking at the down tube decals
It seems to be manufactured in the 70's - 80's
Check the hubs for est. bicycle manufacture date
The top tube (green) SA shifter is from the 50's - 60's (not period correct, but it's nice to have!)
All comes with SA front & rear hubs, rear SA AB hub is quite sought after (drum brakes & 3 speed tranny combine)
Check if the rims are SA and spokes are raleigh's ("R" initial at spoke end)
It's good if you have the keys to the lock!

If they are not too expensive, BUY ALL!

Oh yes!

The Hercules,
It looks pre-Raleigh to me
Correct me if I'm wrong
This is something you might not want to miss!


Hope this helps!
And, I wouldn't want to speculate on the value

This is a tough one
If you can have both, that's perfect!
But if were to choose only one,
Imo, I'll say get the Hercules

Anyone, please share your thoughts
