I can make out what appears to be an "H" then it says "N" then it says "L" and when I put it on "N" position the wheel just spins . Wait I will just take a photo's of it. Intrepid I called on the Coppers they said there were no reports of it stolen, I then told them I was thinking of taking it they said "thanks for removing the trash" If anyone reports it they have my number



The rear hub says on it Sturmey Archer below that is the letters A.W. Below that is a 53 to the right of the 53 is a 5 Is this like the Schwinn badges can I assume this bike was built in May of 1953? Every thing on it points to that era
