BICYCLES OF CANADA

EARLY EIGHTIES? PROCTOR - INTRODUCTION

Proctor bicycles, and their successor, Proctor-Townsends, were built in Edmonton, Alberta Canada, offering yet another very well made bicycle to those that had already established themselves in the Canadian road bicycle scene.

Brad Proctor, a young fellow working at High Country Cycles in Edmonton, had a interest in road bicycles that was keen enough to start him down the path of building lugged steel road bikes.  His bicycles, this Proctor featured here being one of them, are sought after by collectors and riders, alike.

Some time after starting to build bikes, Brad partnered up with his employer, Robert Townsend, and the Proctor-Townsend was born.  Beautiful and well crafted bicycles, all top of the line steeds, were cranked out in limited supply.  Today, it is not uncommon to stumble across fine examples of both brands in and around the Edmonton area.  And, the interest in the Proctors, and subsequent P-Ts, is spreading, as these fine examples make their way, around the world, to other collectors/riders of vintage road bicycles.

Today, both Proctors and Proctor-Townsends are prized collectors items, offering great ride quality, to make the collectible value even sweeter.
