    I'd like to see those too!



    They appeared briefly in the Toronto market in the mid to late 80's, first the road bikes and then some mtn bikes. My first mtn bike was an 87 Douglas Maxim, Deore...

    Nice bike Mike. You know I still have that Talbot, buddy decided to go with a better condition (Dave?) Douglas instead. Another obscure Canadian marque.

    I did but I can't say I've ever met one in person. Another very small maker was Douglas. My first Mudsucker in 87.

    I prefer older models, with the mid 50's being the sweet spot. Better chrome, steel, build quality, accessories and aesthetics. Don't limit yourself to Raleigh - Rudge, Humber, BSA, Hercules are all...

    I've got the tool but what the picture doesn't show is that the engagement splines are recessed about 2 or 3 cogs in, requiring a two step removal process.

    Funky 8 speed Helicomatic?

    Never seen one of these before. I wanted to take it off and lose the dork disc until I realized it's integrated with the 32 cog, stamped and pressed. Dis-assembly is awkward requiring chainwhips to...

    Spin until your oxygen runs short, then shift down and burn up that lactic acid to catch your breath. Spin again, repeat often.

    A Rossin is worth the restoration IMO. That's perfect.

    No relation between the Brit Hercules, or the German Hercules for that matter. Hercules was a CCM specific name for their coaster hubs, dating back to at least the early 1900's.

    One of the wonders of Accushift Plus is fiddling enough to get work it just right. It feels heavy to shift but I like that, like Campy Ergo 8's. Solid.

    The bars are interesting. Could be war bike period with the black paint. BSA's usually had lovely fork crowns so a nice detailed pic (flash off) would be nice.
