Vintage 3 Speed English Bicycles


Sturmey Archer Price List 1954


As best as I can figure, 40 Shillings and 9 Pence for the AW hub works out to about $63.00 (US) in today’s money or $85.00 Canadian.

I was able to pick up 3 NOS hub kits a while back for a good price.

    $63 each brand new for a hub? What a bargain. I seriously doubt that they could make and sell one of those hubs for anywhere near this price today. Makes you wonder about the supposed “efficiency” of modern computer controlled manufacturing methods.

    How much does a reconditioned 3 speed Sturmey Archer hub cost in Canada ? Over here in the U.K they retail for around £20 sterling.

    • Couldn’t really say… I don’t think there’s a huge demand. They do show up on ebay sometimes.
      They’re very plentiful here though and good working ones are easily found at the side of the road….
