Vintage 3 Speed English Bicycles

Christmas Update

Record breaking high temperatures here in Toronto have extended the riding season.

This 1972 Eatons Glider started off as a 3 speed but now sports a 1967/68 Torpedo 2 speed Kick Back hub with a coaster brake. I’ve added a caliper up front for safety.

I’ve inverted some shortened north road bars and a vintage Speedic saddle.

The tires are inexpensive Chao Yang brand from China supplied by George at Parkdale bikes.

All in all an interesting ride but I do prefer a 3 speed.
