Vintage Bikes For Sale

There’s a guy in my neighbourhood (Parkdale) that always has a few vintage bikes for sale. I bought my first Raleigh 3 speed from him a few years ago and he delivered it to my house.

He locks them up at the north end of Sorauren Park or sometimes on Roncesvalles.

Here’s his latest offering. A tall Raleigh Sports 3 Speed.

1953 Humphrey 3 Speed

I gave this bike a little makeover this weekend with the intention to sell it. It’s time to purge a few of the non English bikes.

This is a 1953 Humphrey, a CCM subsidiary that was built in a factory on Bulwer Street here in Toronto. Bulwer is really a lane that runs from Spadina to Soho just north of Queen.

It has a composite Wrights saddle and some vintage Super Jet grips.

Eatons Glider 3 Speed

Another Raleigh built Eatons Glider 3 Speed for sale last week on Kijiji Toronto.

Vintage Miele 12 Speed

This bike passed through my hands briefly before finding a new home. I don’t know much about these bikes but this one appears to be desirable with some quality vintage components. What appears to be a mid 80’s Cro Mo frame with a mid 70’s Suntour Cyclone derailleur added to replace the original Shimano gears.

Additional research tells me it’s an UNO L.S. model.

P1110859 P1110860 P1110861 P1110862The deraileur itself was almost worth the purchase price.

The original owner of the Miele has opted for this very nice and original CCM 3 speed Elite.




New Pashley 5 Speed

I saw this online today. A new Pashley 5 Speed, Martin at Hoop Driver (College and Dufferin) is now a Pashley dealer.

A good looking but expensive bike.
