73 Supercycle 3 Speed Project

This bike belongs to a friend at work. He bought a house last year and the bike was left behind in the garage. It looked to be in a sorry state. After disassembly and a good clean it appears that the bike has spent most of it’s life unridden.. Originally equipped with a Shimano 333 hub I plan to replace with a Sturmey Archer rear wheel. I’ve posted about these bikes before.

A strange CCM/Supercycle hybrid.

Work continues.

1971 Hercules 3 Speed Progress.

I’m making some progress on this one. Disassembled and cleaned. The bottom bracket has been re packed and new tires installed. I’m hoping to find a few parts at the bike show tomorrow to complete.I’m always on the look out for those mini fenders…

Tall Cool Black Raleigh Superbe

Yet another Kijiji post. Seller is asking $300.00 for this one. Not sure if they were ever offered in black, so it could be a re spray.

A very well priced Raleigh Superbe for sale on Toronto Kijiji. The owner is asking $90.00. It’s worth that much just in parts!

New Purchase/1971 Hercules 3 Speed

Picked up a somewhat ratty Hercules 3 speed the other day at a reasonable price ($80.00) The hub is poorly stamped but looks like 1971. Here are the before pictures. It has a Japanese “Speedic” leather saddle as well.

Crazy Rat Bike

My neighbour Dan, put together this Rat Bike from a CCM Rambler and his parts bin. The massive chainring is from an old exercise bike. It takes a while to wind up to speed…

His and Hers Bicycles

Ads often pop up for His and Hers bicycles for sale. Couples often buy them together with the intent of getting out and more active. More often than not, it’s not the case. Before I was bitten by the 3 speed bug I bought a pair of Linus Gastons for my wife and myself.  Later, I bought a Ladies Superbe for my wife but she didn’t care for it and I sold it at the bike show. I also found a nice pair of His and Hers Raleigh Superbes for my Father-in law and his girlfriend as well.


Vintage Victor Circa 1890

Spotted this one at the St. Lawrence Market last Sunday.

CCM Continental 3 Speed

Another Toronto Kijiji ad, this one’s located near High Park with a very reasonable asking price of $160.00.

It won’t last long…

1956 Raleigh Sports

This one showed up today on Kijiji Toronto. The asking price is $450.00 or so and I’d be surprised if he gets any response considering the condition and the fact he says the gears don’t actually work….

Refuse Pile Rescue

The bike is a ’62. Looks like it spent many years outdoors before I found it. We had it as “garden art” in our back yard with flowers in the basket for probably 3 years. I started to tear it down to more easily dispose of it when I thought about building it up. I’m into vintage cars & it’s common to take an old car & modernize the mechanicals so I applied that to the bike. I regret that I had already thrown the fork out, but I cleaned up a rusty old chrome fork from another freebie & I don’t mind the look.

Newer head bearings & races, newer tapered crankshaft with older Sugino cranks & rings  (from a great bike shop in Guelph- Backpeddling), new 700 rims & tires, new drop bars. Just need to finish the brake pulls & cables to ride.
