A Tale of Two Supercycles
Here’s a 1967 3 speed Raleigh built Supercycle in racing trim. Supercycles were made by Raleigh for Canadian Tire stores here in Canada and sold very well. I’m sure my first real bike was a Supercycle (single speed). I wonder if the gold colour was a custom mix for these bikes. Currently listed on Kijiji, Toronto @ $300.00.
Closer examination of the headbadge reveals it does not say made in England, so it may, in fact be a Canadian made Supercycle…. However it does have cottered cranks.
The bike below is also listed on Kijiji, Toronto. However, it looks to me as if the front forks are bent. Listed @ $240.00
