Royal Ascot Bike

Sent in by reader P, here’s a mystery bike for you. P tells me:

The head tube badge says it’s a ‘Royal Ascot’, but I haven’t been able to find anything about them. Most searches turn up stories of people who bike to Royal Ascot, and while they’re interesting, it’s not the information I’m looking for. Perhaps one of your knowledgeable readers will know something about the brand.

The bike was in good condition, Sturmey-Archer 3 speed, classic English frame, braze-ons for a frame pump. It looks mostly original.

    I’m currently 54 yrs. old, when I was a teen-ager of about 14 or 15 yrs old, Royal Ascot used to be a fairly popular brand of English origin, next to Raleigh of course. I can’t recall seeing one since then, that must have been around 1969-70 somewhere around there or so.
