This is my friend Glen’s ladies Hercules bike we believe is a 1971 based on the Sturmey Archer 3 speed hub.
He happened upon this bike after some maniac threw it in the garbage. After some care and cleaning it’s a beautiful bike and fun to ride. Believe it to be all original with the nice front rack and chrome fenders. I thought this bike was so cool it inspired me to get my Raleigh bikes. Here are some more pics:

Know this is a old post. But I had a bike just like this. But different brand. I forget the brand name sorry but looked a lot like this without the basket. I know when I looked it up it was from the 70s also. Would still have it today if my teenager at the time didn’t respect things. I also see you are from Wisconsin? I’m over by Antigo up north. Little past Antigo actually. Love the county. I just can’t ride no more. Bad back. That bike helped me a lot sitting back and straight up loved that bike.
They are great bikes. Lots of different branded ones are similar like Triumph, Raleigh, BSA, Robin Hood…
