Another Vintage Raleigh

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.

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.

Original and Complete Raleigh Superbe

This bike is currently for sale on Kijiji Toronto @ $500.00. Considering that the bike is tall, comes with a leather saddle, pump, bag, Dynohub, period horn and the key, the price is reasonable.

1967 Dunelt Update

I’ve pretty much finished the work on this bike and have been riding it quite regularly.

P1090355I’ve shortened the handle bars by about 1″ on either end and swapped out the brake levers.

Along with the bars I, added a new (used ) stem. Both items from the Community Bicycle Network on Queen.

P1090347 P1090352

P1090366I had some NOS cables in the garage and replaced all of the old ones including the old style shifter cable with a NOS pulley on the seat post.

P1090349 P1090350All that’s left to do is to true the wheels and, if I can find them, add some little mini chrome fenders.

P1090358    The name Dunelt is a combination of the names of two founders, Dunford and Elliot. Originally steel makers in Sheffield, started making motorcycles in Birmingham in 1919, many having Sturmey Archer engines and gearboxes.



3 Speed Torpado


Rat Bike Trio

Despite the fact that I have several very nice English 3 speeds I tend to ride these 3 Rat Bikes more often. They were all virtually free.

The 67 Dunelt @ $40.00, The green CCM/Supercycle (free from the trash) and the 69 CCM Galaxie ($39.00 in trade).

It’s probably because I’ve invested more of my time into these and I’m not too concerned with their appearance.

1967 Dunelt 3 Speed Path Racer

I bought this bike for $50.00 in Hamilton a while ago and have been trying to modify it. I still want to swap out the handlebars for something not as wide.

I’ve added a vintage Wrights composite saddle and a period pump (a gift from Len at Mr. Used in Hamilton).

The Dunelt slogan was “Ride Awheel on Sheffield Steel”.

P1090249 P1090252 P1090253 P1090254 P1090257 P1090256P1090271

After a day of riding I found the inverted bars too hard on the wrists and have swapped out the bars yet again.
