Vintage 3 Speed English Bicycles


East Coast Time Capsule

A current ad on Kijiji from New Brunswick:

Provided by Chris S.

“I bought these from the original owners who were moving. These two bikes were purchased new in 1973 at Canadian tire in Fredericton. Made by Raleigh and badged Supercycle. The woman’s bike was used for a short time to commute, while the men’s bike was not ridden more than a handful of times. The original tires show very little wear on the women’s bike, and none at all on the men’s bike, which still has the casting flash on the center rib.

They were both hung up in the garage in the late 1970’s, and there they remained until recently. Original everything. Tires, seats cables, grips, all original and complete. The woman’s bike has a slow leak in the front tire, but it stayed up long enough for a test ride in my driveway. Both bikes are fully functional. The shifter and brakes work as they did when they were put into storage. I did some superficial cleaning but not very much.
Perfect for a collector, or perhaps to complement a car show display for a car of this age. I live in Woodstock, but do get to Fredericton, so delivery is possible. Asking $250 or nearest offer.”

    Great site. I find and grab these 3 speeds all the time. Most recent two are a 1962 Ervo Sport Super from Holland with 3 speed Sturmey Archer and a West German (unknown manufacturer) 3 speed with what I’m assuming is a Sachs hub.
