    CCM Torino 76

    photo.jpgHi,

    I do have this CCM Torino 76 sitting in the basement. The bike is in really good condition, showing no rust only dust, a few paint chips here and there, faded graphics but other that its 100% original i guess.

    It got Shimano Tourney, Simplex, Sugino, unknown wheels (made in Canada).
    I have no idea how old it is?
    It just sits there under a little dust.
    I was thinking of swapping it into a single speed, then again, i do have too many bikes here.
    What could be its value? Any ideas someone?

    Thanks,

    Yves

    For the best valuation from the forum, you will need to post up clear pics of the bike........
    make sure that you have at least one showing the whole drive side of the bike, so most of the components are visible.

    Well it is a all steel boom era bike with from a lesser maker. So not a whole lot of value cleaned up and ready to ride about $100. As pictured about half that.

    I agree with the other that it might only bring in 50 to 75 bucks max as-is, but cleaned up, serviced and with new cables, top tube clamped on cable clips, bar tape, brake pads and tires, you can get maybe up to 150 bucks in a hot market area where new "retro-bike" urban commuters are looking for old steel bikes like this, which will look like a great bargain, compared to the department store bike alternative that can even be more expensive in most cases.

    That's what i thought, not much value.
    I will stick to my Cannondale collection instead!
    Both bikes are outside now, by the trash container.

    Thanks for the help.

    This bike is similar to a Raleigh Grand Prix and deserves a good home. In the Toronto market, on a good day, cleaned up $200. Advertise it and let it find a home where it will be happy.

    I'd go get it from the trash especially if it is a 531 frame. Would make a great SS conversion.
    Now I guess I'll have to tell 'em
    That I got no cerebellum

    I believe that this is from the 1975 CCM Catalog.

    I have a Torino 76 and it does not have Reynolds 531. The '76' I believe is for the year 1976.

    At this time most other brand names where improving the quality of there frames from year to year. CCM chose to go the other direction. In 1976, CCM was in financial difficulty and encouraging the federal government to set up protective tariffs for the Canadian bicyle manufacturers.
