Cyclops Nora Young

This is beautiful 1980s Cyclops Professional Racing Bicycle in great shape. This bike is jam packed with history, as it was made for the famous Canadian female rider Nora Young. Nora Young was the best female Canadian bicycle racer on the board tracks in the 1930's when she was much younger. She travelled all over Canada and the USA claiming track wins before WW2. In the recognition that cycling can be a lifelong pursuit, it was included in the inaugural Master Games for veteran athletes, held in Toronto in 1985. At the age of 68 she won both the 25 km, and 45km road races at the Master Games for the 65 and over age group. This was accomplished on this cyclops! http://undeniablyyoung.ca/aboutnora The Cyclops entered the Velo world, in 1983, upon Mike's purchase of Lovell Bikes. Focusing on quality of construction and design, the fame of the Cyclops would spread to all corners of the globe. Each Cyclops was of one off design, built to accommodate the fit of the riders for whom the bikes were built. Mike Mulholland's Cyclops was a bicycle capable of standing amongst the best and belonging. Mike Mulholland was a skilled welder and machinist that used a fine jewellers tip flame and silver to weld his high quality frames. Each bike was bespoke, custom built to the buyer’s needs and desires. Cyclops had some of the most unique, wild, and bright neon paint jobs available. Every bike was hand made in Toronto on Sinclair Street (later 1990s bikes were made in BC). There were only about 1500 cyclops bicycle ever made. Each frame set cost about $1600 in the 1980s depending on how customized the customer wanted it. Unfortunately Mike passed in 2005 so you can no longer have this skilled craftsman make you a custom truly handmade Canadian bicycle.
