Victoria from Victoriaville...

Got my hands on this neat old Victoria, made in Victoriaville, Quebec. The two speed roadster, with its 28 inch wheels, is in great shape although I do wonder if it has been repainted.

I could not resist, and, after checking the bike over, took it out for a spin. The bike is like most old roadsters. Slow to get going but, once underway, the inertia seems to propel the bicycle almost by itself. Cool, and I just might add one antique roadster, to my ever changing collection of Canadian made bicycles.

Great Pictures Randy.

Perfect background for a vintage bike.

1948???

My guess, based on the two digit number stamped on the SA rear hub, would be 1948. This old bike is a treat to ride, assuming that one can get past any kind of performance comparison issues. Just a relaxed old tractor to get around on. That said, I have tried any hills, yet. Up or down:-)
