Simcoe Toronto Edition
Posted on 15 May 2015
Editors note: one of the sweetest bikes ever made and totally limited edition. As of this year we still have a couple of green roadsters, but only just a couple.

The year is 1791, and a young British officer has just been appointed as the first Lieutenant Governor of Upper Canada. His name is John Simcoe. The territory he has been entrusted with is wild, without infrastructure or industry. Forests of red oak and maple dominate the landscape, while paved roads are nowhere to be found. At first, Simcoe saw his posting as “a species of banishment”, and understandably so. Leaving your life behind to build up a sparsely populated colony, battered by frost and foreign forces alike, is a daunting task by any standard. But, never willing to back down from a challenge, the perseverant Governor got straight to work.
