1967 Dunelt 3 Speed Path Racer

I bought this bike for $50.00 in Hamilton a while ago and have been trying to modify it. I still want to swap out the handlebars for something not as wide.

I’ve added a vintage Wrights composite saddle and a period pump (a gift from Len at Mr. Used in Hamilton).

The Dunelt slogan was “Ride Awheel on Sheffield Steel”.

After a day of riding I found the inverted bars too hard on the wrists and have swapped out the bars yet again.

Yet Another 1972 Raleigh Superbe.

1972 must have been a good year for Raleigh in Canada as the ’72 model seems to be available in abundance lately. I picked this one up (from Kitchener) on Sunday as a Fathers’ Day gift for my Father-in-law.

The proper position for the shifter.

Nice paint and decals.

The Dynohub is intact and still works after 40 years!

And it even has the original Raleigh brand tires that need to be changed.

Brand New 1972 Raleigh Superbe

This Raleigh Superbe appears to have never been ridden and is in virtually brand new showroom floor condition. As such it’s a valuable restoration resource for the placement of decals and clips etc. Even the angle of the shifter seems factory set. It even comes with the original fork key. This bike would have retailed for approx. $104.00 in 1972, using the Bank of Canada’s Inflation Calculator, that works out to $550.00 to buy the same product today. The Superbe was always Raleigh’s top of the line model, and continues to hold it’s value.

Toronto Vintage Bike Show Update

Canadian Made Sunshine Bicycle

Built in Waterloo Ontario, this one is for sale on Queen Street near Bathurst for $125.00.

A little history from the web:

“Incorporated in 1929 by H.V. McKay of Sunshine Harvester Works(Australia) and Massey-Harris(Canada). Sunshine-Waterloo Company Ltd. was formed. They built a 285,000 square foot plant in Waterloo, Ontario in 1930. The company was involved in manufacturing mainly farm equipment before the war. The company diversified during the 1930s adding the production of baby carriages, bicycles, tricycles and roller skates. In 1939 the manufacturing converted to war-related production army trucks, smoke bombs, shells, mines, grenades and gun mounts. Following the war, market changes led to the company adding office products, stoves, shelving and lockers. Massey-Ferguson Industries Limited(formed in 1953 from Massey-Harris-Ferguson) purchased H.V.MacKay’s share in 1955, acquiring the Sunshine-Waterloo Company in the process.

This association allowed the company to expand in the office equipment market leading to a switch in focus in 1956 almost entirely to the manufacture of steel office furniture. The name was changed to Sunshine Office Equipment Limited in 1961”

A nice Sunshine/Whizzer conversion.
