3 Speed Mohawk Mystery Bike

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….

$_2zdxfh7.JPG

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.

$_2cxb7.JPG$_xcfdht27.JPG$_2xfbd7.JPG

From “American Standard Time”.

“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.”

Bridgestone Youngway

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.

p1090101 3306047312_8d09bb1287_bIt originally would have looked something like this.

ae8d2db1e433feb11d513193475581f9df774b04The used bike shop that I bought it from decided that all of the lights and racks etc. were not an incentive so stripped the bike and threw it all in the garbage…..

The bike below just showed up on Kijiji Toronto.

The same bike re-branded as a Supercycle for Canadian Tire.

1970 Carlton Glider 10 Speed

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.

CCM Imperial Tandem

There’s a guy who regularly has a couple of bikes for sale at the top of Sorauren Park. This is his latest offering. A mid 60’s CCM Imperial Tandem.

I don’t really see the point of these things but I suppose some find them charming…

P1090389 P1090393 P1090392I bought my first vintage 3 speed from him a few years a go. A Canadian built 1977 Raleigh Superbe which has proved to be a very reliable everyday bike.

p1060137The saddle bags have since been transferred to another Superbe.

1967 Dunelt Update

I’ve pretty much finished the work on this bike and have been riding it quite regularly.

P1090355I’ve shortened the handle bars by about 1″ on either end and swapped out the brake levers.

Along with the bars I, added a new (used ) stem. Both items from the Community Bicycle Network on Queen.

P1090347 P1090352

P1090366I had some NOS cables in the garage and replaced all of the old ones including the old style shifter cable with a NOS pulley on the seat post.

P1090349 P1090350All that’s left to do is to true the wheels and, if I can find them, add some little mini chrome fenders.

P1090358    The name Dunelt is a combination of the names of two founders, Dunford and Elliot. Originally steel makers in Sheffield, started making motorcycles in Birmingham in 1919, many having Sturmey Archer engines and gearboxes.
