1947 Humber Sturmey Archer add
Pictured above is a scan of the add in the back of my 1947 Humber catalog, it shows the various types of Sturmey Archer hubs that were on offer in 1947. Many owners of new bikes , in this case 1947 Humber's would often upgrade to a Sturmey Archer hub which is what my father did by upgrading his Humber Sports with the ABC hub pictured above. I'm still using the original hub body although it has been rebuilt using a more modern 3 speed internal unit as the old internal gears were damaged and a larger cog has been fitted for pass storming.
