This is a late 1960s Triumph 3 speed bicycle that was recently purchased by a friend of mine. They were looking for a classic city bike for light tooling around town and doing it in style. Triumph, at this point, was a subsidiary of Raleigh Industries and building the popular “English Racer” 3 speeds.

The bike with fenders, a chainguard, and upright handlebars makes for an excellent city commuter. Most riders of these bikes find that the Sturmey Archer 3 speed internal gear is more than adequate for a city like Philadelphia. I find that a lot of my commute, I usually only use 2 gears.
