1930'S HERCULES "RACER" BICYCLE

Today it's a very cool old bicycle I found at an estate sale.
 It's a Hercules Bike from England.
 I think it's been made into a "racer" style back in the late 30's.
 You can see the leather seat is gone.  I'll need a new one of those.
 Amazing Hercules cast in the front gear.
 And yes, it's original 1942 Los Angeles Bicycle License!
 With a nice set of dry rotted United States Special Racer Bike Tires!  I'm going to really enjoy getting this old beauty back on the road.

    1. Probably 400-1000 depending on who's buying it and how bad they want it.

  2. Nice find. I love these old British bikes. Here is an old Hercules I found in a barn sale last year. Sucker flies down the road now. http://www.ratrodbikes.com/forum/index.php?threads/weekend-vintage-find.74303/#post-780631

    Cheers and have fun with it
