Another bike on Kijiji, Toronto. A mid 50’s Robin Hood 3 speed. The owners are looking for an enthusiast to purchase and restore. Price is negotiable.
Definetly a challenge, but worth somebody’s time.
Ruff and Ready…
Steve T. brought this bike to my attention. Currently listed on Kijiji Toronto, an American built bike with British components and a Canadian flag as an emblem….
Mohawk bicycles appear to have been built by the H.P. Snyder Company out of Little Falls, New York.
This bike sports a Canadian flag on the front and I assume it was packaged as a line for a small Hardware Store or a Department Store chain. The one piece crank is a clue to it’s North American origin.
“Most Hawthorne bicycles were manufactured by either H.P. Snyder or the Cleveland Welding Company. Because these companies made bikes for many brands, most Hawthorne bicycles were virtually identical to models made for other retailers, but paint colors, sprocket style and brand badging were different. Many parts on bikes coming from the same manufacturer are interchangeable. Snyder also made bikes for Rollfast.”

It turns out that this bike is indeed a Bridgestone Youngway.
The store that I bought it from decided to remove all of the lights and horns etc and threw them in the garbage!
Although I quite liked this bicycle It was too small for me so I gave it to a young woman I work with who will get more use out of it.
The bike below just showed up on Kijiji Toronto.
The same bike re-branded as a Supercycle for Canadian Tire.
Obviously not a 3 speed, this is still an interesting bike. Made in England by Carlton for the Eatons chain here in Canada. Carlton bicycles were taken over by Raleigh in 1961 but maintained a somewhat independent status. Their bicycles were well respected and were still hand finished.
I really like the mini fenders.
A good buy @ $125.00 but located in Niagara Falls Ontario.
This ones also on Kijiji for $130.00.
Listed on Kijiji Toronto for $300.00.
Also on Kijiji Toronto is this Raleigh built Eaton’s Glider 3 speed @ $150.00.
This one popped up on Kijiji Toronto today @ $200.00. The ad claims it’s from 1953 but I think it’s a 70’s bike. Nice Brooks saddle.
Not a vintage bicycle but vintage in Spirit. Linus has introduced a tasteful repro headlight for their bikes. Saddle tool bag by Electra (vinyl), Brooks saddle and wooden rear rack from Canadian Tire.
