Canadian Bikes, or CCM ... models, years, ect

hey there! I have recently aquired a very beautiful vintage CCM bicycle.
I gather it's from the 1940's... it has the 1937 patent stamp on the rear Hub.

This ranks as probably the most comfy bike i have ridden, ever. I am just over 6 foot tall and
i have a hard time finding a bike with a good feel, so i don't feel cramped. This one just opens up
for me and is one fast bike once you get er up to speed



I am posting pics in this post, and please i would love it if someone could help me to discover what
model this bike is and possible year it was released. It appears to have been painted, the original colour
being a nice sky blue. Not a bad paint job, but I do plan on stripping and repaint this bike..It's a keeper and
i'm going to pamper this.

BTW, it appears to be a Standard Roadster. The chainguard may be a later addition, as it does not appear in any of my literature, though I do not have that particular catalogue.
