    It's his Dads bike it's not for sale at this time. However, looking for info, age and value. Its pretty cool. He began cleaning the black stripe in the front wheel when he realized it was paint.

    Has the oil bath chain case.

    Dads initials in the seat.

    Thank you for your help.

    Looks a lot like this ad from 1950, when the company was under the BSA umbrella. Production continued until 1957. Sorry I can't narrow things down more than that.

    If it has a Sturmey Archer rear hub, it'll have a 2 digit year code. -Adam
