Supercycle 3 Speed

$(KGrHqZHJDoFIS3m+NWPBSJ0)oKZvg~~48_20 $T2eC16V,!y8E9s2fjtksBSJ0yDkGD!~~48_20 $(KGrHqVHJFQFIhlF0332BSJ0yQIsqw~~48_20This from a Rob:

Mid to late sixties, senior public and early high school in Richmond Hill – the gold Supercycle racer was definitely the bike to have. I remember a leather seat and steel rat-trap pedals – and of course the coolest guys removed the fenders. Several of my friends had gold racers.

I never managed to own one but modified my Raleigh 3 speed roadster by flipping and reversing the North Road bars and adding my own leather saddles and steel pedals – very hip. We rode those 3 speeds everywhere – the “Hill” in those days was pretty rural – loads of dirt roads and farmers tracks to explore.

I’ve been keeping my eyes open for one of these I don’t think they were all that common – nice find. I did though manage to dig up a 1965 Raleigh roadster – blue and pretty complete , awaiting restoration.

I’m sure I found this add on Kijiji Toronto. The bike is not mine.

I remember the late sixties as well and it seems to me that we all started to think of the 3 speeds as a “kid’s” bike since the older teenagers were all getting 10 speeds, a grown up bike.

I still prefer the simplicity of design and function of the internal hub and find no need for all those extra gears.

CCM Imperial Tandem

There’s a guy who regularly has a couple of bikes for sale at the top of Sorauren Park. This is his latest offering. A mid 60’s CCM Imperial Tandem.

I don’t really see the point of these things but I suppose some find them charming…

P1090389 P1090393 P1090392I bought my first vintage 3 speed from him a few years a go. A Canadian built 1977 Raleigh Superbe which has proved to be a very reliable everyday bike.

p1060137The saddle bags have since been transferred to another Superbe.
