Before I list it on eBay, I'm offering a Sturmey Archer ASC hub, dated October 1949, to list members. Pictures can be viewed at:
It's been overhauled by Hilary earlier this year, and not used since. The spoke holes are in excellent condition, as is the alloy shell, apart from some minor scuffs.
The sprung cover for the left-hand ball cup oil hole is missing, but Hilary confirmed that this will not present a problem. If oil should weep from the hole while in use, then it can be plugged with grease, but these hubs aren't oil tight anyway. This oiler hole was omitted altogether on later models.
Price is GBP175, plus shipping.
If interested, please contact me off-list. I'm happy to answer any queries.
