Vintage 3 Speed English Bicycles


1969 Robin Hood Update

The Robin Hood has 2 issues to address.
1-the bike is not tracking well. The front end wanders. Not sure why, Everything is straight and appears true. It has a 26 x 1 1/4 rim up front.
2-it doesn’t want to engage in first gear. The hub (1965) appeared good but I didn’t take it apart.Cable is new and seems properly adjusted.
I’ll fiddle with it some more and if that fails, I’ll have a look inside.

    Could it be a tire problem? One of my three speeds (Robin Hood) also had a fork issue where one side came outwards farther than the other.
