Mike Barry and Greg Curnoe in The Star

There is a good article in The Toronto Star this morning about Greg Curnoe's bikes, told through Mike Barry. I can't wait to see the replica bikes Mike comes up with (actually, I have seen one of them, in an unpainted state, but I'm eager to see it all finished...). And I've got to get down to Cherry Bomb and see that CCM.

Update: I did indeed go and see the CCM Flyer this weekend. Lots of interesting details, like pencil-thin stays, a "single-plate" internally-lugged fork crown, and half-lugs. Olivier and I are both getting interested in making replicas of this most famous of Canadian bikes...
