The 1953 Defiance has a Sturmey Archer AW hub, Lycett saddle, and 26" Dunlop rims. The frame does not conform to Raleigh-made specifications. There was a brand of bicycle called 'Defiance' in England during the first part of the 20th century, but this bicycle is likely the product of the C.W.S. "Cycle Wholesalers Service". Here are more pics of the Defiance.
