1969 CCM Galaxie

A very clean example on Kijiji last summer

The project bike, donated by film maker Alan Zweig.

This Galaxie was given a quick makeover and turned into a nice little 3 speed roadster. I would normally leave the paint on a bike as found but this example was pretty rough as it had been left outside for the better part of 10-15 years. The original Sturmey Archer hub was replaced by one from Community Bicycle Network on Queen and the bars from Bike Pirates on Bloor.

The bike was sold (at cost) to Josh, a student of mine. He didn’t really like it so he brought it back and swapped it for another one. It then went to Alexandra (student) who was deported last year and once again, the bike came back.

This bike was originally owned by another film maker, Don Mckellor

and can be seen in his short film, Hot Chicks on Bikes.

The bike is currently in my possession again.

It’s going to a new home this weekend…..

and hopefully it’s story will continue.
