Velo Sport "Supra"

I found a Velo Sport "Supra" frame and fork set at the Dump last weekend (along with a Miele Uno LS, a Norco Avanti SL and a Trevor Deeley, Apollo). Managed to find a near mint Peugeot "Course" at a yard sale, also. Anyway...

The Velo Sport was a Canadian made road bicycle and the "Supra" was the top dog of the line. I know little about the bicycle. Any information, that other Forum members have, would be much appreciated.

Also, if anyone has pictures of such a bike, they too would be appreciated. I will post pictures of the bicycle "as found" as soon as I get a chance to do so.

Hey RJ,

I had a Velo Sport "Supra" frame/fork that I sold last year. I didn't know what model it was but I believe it was T-Mar that filled me in.

It is a very nice build with lots of frame details that make it stand out from the crowd. The Supra may have been contract built in Italy (Billato maybe?) as it shared a lot of similarities with other Italian bikes of the period, Viner for example.
