Chinese Bicycle on Queen Street

Spotted on Queen West this past weekend a newly purchased LarkLark bicycle, made in China, year unknown.


Vintage Indian Hercules

Spotted in the Market a Hercules bicycle built in India, year unknown. Based on the Raleigh Tourist these bikes are still produced by the thousands.

Very similar to the Flying Pigeon from China.

The owner added the Brooks saddle and the quart of milk.
