My neighbour, Dan, is also into vintage bicycles. He mostly likes 50’s Rat Rod bikes that he customizes and sells. He currently has this 60’s CCM 3 speed Path Racer up for sale on Craigslist Toronto at a very reasonable $140.00.
This bike belongs to a friend at work. He bought a house last year and the bike was left behind in the garage. It looked to be in a sorry state. After disassembly and a good clean it appears that the bike has spent most of it’s life unridden.. Originally equipped with a Shimano 333 hub I plan to replace with a Sturmey Archer rear wheel. I’ve posted about these bikes before.
A strange CCM/Supercycle hybrid.
After dis assembly it became clear that this was a very low mileage bicycle and had spent most of it’s 40 yeras stashed in a gararge. I decided to leave the Shimano 333 hub on the bike to preserve it’s originality. Other than time, the only costs on this one was $40.00. two new tires and a chain. The photos don’t capture the true colour.
My neighbour Dan, put together this Rat Bike from a CCM Rambler and his parts bin. The massive chainring is from an old exercise bike. It takes a while to wind up to speed…
Another Toronto Kijiji ad, this one’s located near High Park with a very reasonable asking price of $160.00.
It won’t last long…
Here’s a clean example of a mid 60’s CCM Galaxie 3 speed offered at a very reasonable $100.00 on Toronto Kijiji.
My friend Hiep Pham put together this simple but elegant Path Racer from a bike he found in the trash.
Another 3 speed that popped up on Kijiji Toronto.
Not really in my area of interest, but still a collectable vintage bicycle.
