Raleigh Superbe 3 Speed

Vintage Miele 12 Speed

This bike passed through my hands briefly before finding a new home. I don’t know much about these bikes but this one appears to be desirable with some quality vintage components. What appears to be a mid 80′s Cro Mo frame with a mid 70′s Suntour Cyclone derailleur added to replace the original Shimano gears.

P1110859 P1110860 P1110861 P1110862The deraileur itself was almost worth the purchase price.

The original owner of the Miele has opted for this very nice and original CCM 3 speed Elite.




New Pashley 5 Speed

I saw this online today. A new Pashley 5 Speed, Martin at Hoop Driver (College and Dufferin) is now a Pashley dealer.

A good looking but expensive bike.

1977 Raleigh Tourist and A Mystery Bicycle

Blog subscriber Chris has sent me some photos of a couple of his vintage bicycles.

“Here’s my 1977 Tourist. I’ve had this bike for two years now, and just love riding on those big 28” wheels! I would like it if I had a full chaincase, but you know, its a great looking bike as is. The rod brakes are a bit sketchy, but they sure are cool. Before this, I had a Sprite five speed, that was a great bike. But when this showed up locally for sale, I couldn’t help myself. I still have the Sprite, though it does duty as a Moped now, as I fitted a Chinese engine kit to it.”

-1 -2 -3I agree that the rod brakes are a little sketchy but hopefully you’re just cruising along on a bike like this..

The second bike below.

-4“Now here, is the Mystery~Bike! Enjoying as I do my bicycle rides, I figured I’d get my girlfriend a great old bike too. I found this locally, and snatched it up for $75. Around here, a Sprite 5 speed goes for $250. (We have a plethora of Hipsters out here in Victoria) 28” wheels!! Replacement bars I’m sure, and a sloppy flat black paint job. But I have to say, I think it’s just beautiful!
The plan here is to to take the bike apart, clean and polish everything, Paint and stripe it, and then ride the tyres off of it!! The cream 28” tyres and black handgrips are here already, and now that I have taken the photos, I’d better get busy getting the bike ready to ride. I will be making a chain guard for it, or if I get really rippy, perhaps a chain case.

-5 -6 -7There is nickle/chrome on the fork, as you can see. And a H.R. Perry front hub, with oil cup.

-8Mystery chain ring! A mystery to me anyway. The pedals are not marked either.

-9 -10Anyone have a suggestion?


Spring Has Finally Sprung!

P1110813I took old faithful out for a ride today. My 1976 Canadian built Raleigh Superbe. It’s not a show bike but I do put a lot of miles on this one, and everything works the way it should. Certainly one of the best hubs.


Street CCM 3 Speed

Spotted on Edward Street outside of BMV.

Another CCM Galaxie 3 Speed

1967 Raleigh Sports 5 Speed

Here’s a reasonably priced Raleigh Sports 5 speed currently on Ebay @ $230.00.

$_bb57 $_cc57 $_aa57 $_dd57 $_ee57This one uses 2 thumb shifters to control the 5 speed hub.

Toronto Vintage Bicycle Show 2014

bike4I know it’s a bit early but we’re looking at Sunday July 27, 2014 for this year’s show. The location will be the south end of Trinity Bellwoods Park here in Toronto.

These girls won’t be there but others will.


1954 Rudge 3 Speed

Another expensive bicycle on Ebay. This one with an asking price of $600.00. Just because something’s old doesn’t make it rare and valuable….

$_b57 $_b57-1 $_b57-2 $_b57-3 $_b57-4 $_b57-5


Modified 1960 Raleigh Sports

Also found on Ebay. I find the inverted bars attractive but uncomfortable to ride. Also the 3 speed trigger should be replaced on this one with a period Sturmey Archer trigger. Priced At $550.0 the seller will accept an offer.

1964 AMF Hercules 3 Speed

Found on Ebay, this bike is quite clean and original. The asking price is a little steep at $600.00. The most I’ve ever paid for a vintage bicycle was $425.00 a couple of years ago for a very clean 1976 Raleigh Tourist with some period accessories attached.
