In the 1950s it was repainted with new decals and has new 1950s Dunlop wheels. Flip flop hub. I plan tune up.

Pre Raleigh sweet, I have a BSA hub 2 speed hub that switches from freewheel to fixed gear
The J on the drop outs was only used in the 1930s. It’s been upgraded some so it’s hard to say exact year and model. It could be 1932 “Gents“ model. Here is an original. It’s got a front drum brake and a 3 speed, and different pedals which is different.

We got a ton of snow over the last 3 days. Our 1 mile access road is a narrow one lane with spring holes. It’s real bad. I’m not working on it for awhile. I founded it posted on a UK bike nerd site and it was linked to UK eBay. It’s not here yet but it will be two months before the weather cooperates, 2 1/2 until the black flies diminish so only what can be worked on in the house will be done.

Love those badges I have a few brass ones, I actually love British transportation. Most people don't realize BSA was higher end stuff than Raleigh.
