Canadian Catalogs...

Whew! After just over 48 hours, the most recent upload to MY "TEN SPEEDS" is complete. If interested, I invite you to have a look at some of the information just published.

As promised a short while ago, here are the Catalogs a Owner's Manuals just uploaded.

Wow, this is awesome randy. I see a miele I own is here; https://www.mytenspeeds.com/My_TenSpe...one_Pg_110.jpg

so its a "tempo", a coincidental schwinn moniker, or perhaps the Ford Tempo? haha.

FYI, the CCM catalogue is definitely a 1975 model year..

The Miele catalog appears to be a 1986 model year. Orignally, I was thinking 1985, as the only SIS is the Dura-Ace on the Equipe but the Equipe S has Sprint which was introduced in 1986. On top of that, the Tempo, Laser, Condor and beta pics and specs are identical to the ads in 1986 magazines.

The Miele brochure uses some bicycle pics form 1986 but the big bicycle pic is a 1987 Suprema, so it should be a 1987 model year brochure. They also used the "Suddenly Everyone is Riding a Miele" tag in their advertisements. I'll try to find one to corroborate the year.

The Sekine sales brochure is for the 1980 model year, not the 1970s.

The Sekine World's Finest Bicycle Brochure is for the 1975 model year.

I'm not sure if you're attempting to fill out your photo's of Canadian bikes but I've got a Canadian made Super Grand Prix that's in pretty good shape (replaced RD and bar tape but that's about it). Thanks for a great site , I check it out often!

Until now and with one exception, virtually every bicycle, picture and word string is original randyjawa. The one picture of a bicycle that I did not own, but did ride, is that of a Sekine SHX270.

The rest of the pictures of the completed bicycle are too small share. The fellow did say he would send me better pictures of the completed bicycle, with fenders mounted, but I never did see them. Too bad. It looks like he did a really nice job!

That said, I have toyed with the idea of asking people who have been good enough to buy a bicycle, or even six bicycles, from me if they would be willing to send pictures of their bicycles, as they are now.

A few of my customers have already sent me pictures, of their finished products, usually people who purchased frame sets from me. I was so tempted to include those on MY "TEN SPEEDS", that I did so. Pictures like the restored Gentleman's Mercier (my name for it)...



The more I think about it, the more the idea appeals to me. Anyone interested in sharing pictures and information of vintage Canadian bicycles, with me for publication?
