Apollo bikes, of Japanese origin, were built by Kuwahara, I believe, and imported into Canada by Fred Deeley, on the west coast.
The one you show is an early example. Though I have owned one, and seen a few others, I really do not know too much about them.
The Apollo improved, over the years, finally offering some pretty nice machines. Many, such as the Sport 10, or 12, were of entry level nature. Others, like the Custom Sport
, Club Sport and Grand Sport. The nicest one I have owned had to be the Apollo Gran Touriste
, a really well made and beautiful to behold touring bike. Wish I still had it...
