This one is currently for sale in Parkdale, Toronto.
Here’s a link to the ad on Craig’s List
All in all a very nice bike with all the accessories.
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.
Currently offered on Kijiji Toronto, a clean Canadian built Raleigh Sports.
If you’re planning to attend this year’s Toronto Vintage Bicycle Show there’s only one week left to get your bikes spiffed up for display!
We had a terrific turn out last year and will see even more rare and stylish rides this year.
Here’s a couple of links to photos from last year.
Edward in Toronto took some great photos as well.
Come on down!!
A good buy @ $125.00 but located in Niagara Falls Ontario.

Also on Kijiji Toronto is this Raleigh built Eaton’s Glider 3 speed @ $150.00.
This one popped up on Kijiji Toronto today @ $200.00. The ad claims it’s from 1953 but I think it’s a 70’s bike. Nice Brooks saddle.
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…
