1971 Hercules 3 Speed Progress.

I’m making some progress on this one.┬áDisassembled and cleaned. The bottom bracket has been re packed and new tires installed. I’m hoping to find a few parts at the bike show tomorrow to complete.I’m always on the look out for those mini fenders…

New Purchase/1971 Hercules 3 Speed

Picked up a somewhat ratty Hercules 3 speed the other day at a reasonable price ($80.00) The hub is poorly stamped but looks like 1971.┬áHere are the before pictures. It has a Japanese “Speedic” leather saddle as well.

I’ve attached an older, broken in Wrights saddle that’s more period appropriate.
