This showed up on Kijiji Toronto this morning and I can’t find anything about it on the interweb.
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.
I’ve pretty much finished the work on this bike and have been riding it quite regularly.
Along with the bars I, added a new (used ) stem. Both items from the Community Bicycle Network on Queen.
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.
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.
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”.
After a day of riding I found the inverted bars too hard on the wrists and have swapped out the bars yet again.
The bike as originally purchased below.
This one, currently for sale on Kijji appears to be in very good original condition.
Another bike currently for sale on Kijiji Toronto.
Thanks to everyone that’s been visiting the site.
Today’s post is a vintage Raleigh Dawn Tourist currently offered on Kijiji Toronto.
A very clean 60′s Supercycle made by Raleigh for Canadian Tire.
