A hornet would have a tank and painted rims unless it was a hornet deluxe (chrome rims). but a deluxe would also have a springer...

    I just couldn't resist

    Call me crazy, but i just couldn't resist this clean 57 Hornet Deluxe. The crazy part is I drove almost 8 hours round trip to pick it up. I had never seen this color combo before and fell in love with it. Even crazier is that I now own two 57 Hornets and I purchased them both in upstate Vt...

    There is a two digit number stamped on the rear hub underneath the Sturmey Acrher Logo that can help you date your bike. The two digits represent the year the hub was made and most likely the year the bike was made also

    55 Columbia 3 star

    I told myself I wasn't gonna buy anymore bikes but I couldn't resist this one. It was in such nice original condition. I have always loved the early fifties 3 and 5 stars. Wish it had a springer but you can't have everything. Gonna ride it and enjoy it for a bit. If I sell I will let you know.
