    Cunningham #10D

    Sorry for the weak pics folks. Light was not ideal but it was one of the few moments when it was not raining.

    Here it is. Cunningham Racer #10D. I'm the original owner. Put down the deposit and waited a year to get it. Built with clearance for 2.5" tires. Original toggle cam linkages here:
    Some Intersting Cunningham Parts

    Switched over the new cam system when Charlie improved on the design.

    Wider flange front hub. BB brake cable routing accommodates traditional roller cams and toggle cams. I have the Suntour XC Pro pedals that I originally used but one of the cages is broken. Calling doctor DoubleCentury!

    I had not been on this bike in a long time and had forgotten how well it rides. Just an amazing machine.

    That is a complete beaut. I have 11D and those bikes are so refined, so nice.

    Thank you. Coming from someone like you (someone that owns numerous Hams), it means a lot. I hear you were in Toronto this summer. Wish I'ld known earlier. Would have been nice to go out with a fellow Ham owner and talk shop.

    I'll be back in Toronto soon enough. Based on the weather we might be able to bomb the Don or at least kill some Tall Boys!

    I had some great Don riding when I was last in the city, even though I had some run-ins with aggressive raccoons.

    If you make it this way, make sure you drop me a line. I have some great stories about the shops and scene around here from mid 80s to early 90s. Very exciting times and some exceptional shops. And no better way to reminisce than over a few pints!

    BTW, beautiful pic. I remember riding the Don in the 80s - what a fun series of trails.

    Thank you SO much for posting these pictures, MO. What a gorgeous bike. Just fantastic. Thanks once more.

    Love that it's dirty, too. Attaboy.

    Glad you like A.

    As for the dirt, I tried to wipe off most of it for the pics, but the truth is I always saw the bike as something to ride. Lube the bearings, cable and chain and just brush off the most of the mud and dirt. I always felt it was in keeping with the spirit of the bike.

    I kinda wish I had been riding more in the last few years.

    Great pics!... Thanks for sharing.

    My bike/story is similar: first/only owner of #15D. 2.5" tire and 118mm hub option like yours. For me, it has remained in the prime rotation of "rider" bikes all these years and is still my overall favorite.

    Original Owners...It was super fun to meet you 15D at the Biketoberfest and geek out on the Trailmaster with you and the other guys....
    I don't know why anyone would or could part with their Charlie Bike other than dire financial reasons...

    Keep an eye out for my buddy Judd's Ham that has been missing for about 2 years now?
    15D, do you know the # of his? I can't remember right now. I'm pretty sure it is a D also.
    I think about a 1991? The years are melting together.
    He was the original owner in that the bike was actually made for our boss/friend but $ issues passed the bike to Judd and Pete didn't get to ride it. (Pete owns a Trailmaster though... poor guy) We did some major tree work at CC's house for that bike.
    Hopefully it hasn't been recycled in Oakland or something.

    Here is a pic from the Biketoberfest of an earlier Ham...This bike was one of the owners major purchases after she had sold her house.
    She bought a Charlie Bike and $500.00 of lingerie. She said she got way more pleasure from the use of the bike. This has been her favorite bike for years.
