No numbers, because the blipping thing is still high in the air. If I were doing anything with the bike, I'd just leave the gearbox as is, unless it was no good in which case a Sturmey Archer FW could go back in.

I'm pretty sure the gearbox in the Miller electrics illustration is also Albion, something like this one https://auctionet.com/en/3007648-albion-gearbox-england-1920-30s . If so, funny that it appears in an advert telling us that all Dunelts use Sturmey Archer 3-speed gearboxes.

Itís frustrating isnít it. There are overtones of FW but not enough. Could it be a preproduction jobbie or a prototype FW. Thereís not enough detail to tell.
The current Albion should be easy enough to identify from its makers number. Famous last words I know. Supposedly Albion only made two speeders up until 1926 when their first three speeder appeared. Could you locate the makers alphanumeric id number for us Leon? Itíd be a great help.

And here's the advert mentioned by 33d6, showing a gearbox that is not Sturmey Archer FW (fitted to most model Ks). I suspect it's also not the box in the Adelaide bike.

Any idea what it is? The bike is flat tank, so maybe 1926-7.

I got a slightly better look at the right hand side of the bike. The gearbox seems to be Albion? Certainly the lever has ALBION on it, but there are two drilled holes (one to mount the rod that goes to the gear change on the front of the box) which are drilled into the writing, so I wonder if the whole gear change lever and gate is a bit cobbled up. Maybe Albion CJ (2 speed +ks), EJ (3 speed + ks) fromt he late 1920s or Midget from the early 1930s?

Maybe the original box failed early in the bike's life, and this one has been adapted to suit. It looks like it's been there for a long time.

Bigsby later designed the Bigsby Bear Trap as used on electric guitars.
