A little bit of boosterism for the 4th:

Love the updated cork grips, desconhecido. They compliment the saddle brilliantly, and look sharp alongside the brown.

The Sprite is adorable--love that red! And yes--I need some Wald baskets...

So--while I have you all here--what the heck is this bike? A '78 Sport--with a full chain case and a loop frame? Maybe this is a Canadian thing, but I've never seen this before. http://montreal.en.craigslist.ca/bik/1813730214.html Fiona--maybe you need a trip to Montreal? :^)

oh dear!! she is beautiful!! too bad I am scared to death of driving in Montreal LOL ...wonder if they could box her up and ship here via Greyhound ::thinking cap on:::

I know--how cute is that bike? And dark green--I love it...

I will keep an eye out for saddlebags of that type--I have a couple but the straps are cracked, etc. I usually find them small for the stuff I want to carry.

LOL I thought the bike was black but its still pretty in the dark green too.

Thanks for keeping a eye out too...I know Old Roads has the vinyl ones too at around 22$US but they only ship within the U.S. Grrrrr lol

Nice...the Continentals were their premium roadster from the mid 60's...funky pedals, rear dyno...maybe an SA twist grip? I've seen a few but they were all 64 or 65.

It has a clone trigger shifter (will need to replace that) and a non original front wheel which is smooth as butter on glass, and would say this bike has a ride that equals a full sized Raleigh Roadster which is probably due to it's immense wheel base.

All I had to do was put a bunch of parts together and find a matching rear fender (pulled off a Galaxy) and give it a light polish.

The rear fender stays need some cleaning up too.

I like your bags! Yeah--now I look there are a lot of the Swiss "bread bags" which I can see might make terrific saddle bags. But the guy with the big ammo bags has rigged them up with straps and fittings for a rack, plus you get two of them, so it still doesn't seem like a crazy rip-off. But one I get started accessorizing, I'll be in the poorhouse. For now I'm trying to make do with what I have lying around.

I'm happy with the cork grips -- thanks again for the suggestion. They were a little loose on the bars but a layer of tape fixed that.

I'd guess that 28" as in 635, not 622.

Thanks Tom! You know your stuff :-) When an early explorer (forget which one now, Champlaign or somesuch) asked the locals 'what do you call this place?' meaning this 9,984,670 square kilometres of pristine lands, lakes, beavers, timber and mineral resources stretching from sea to sea to sea, waiting to be turned into fantastic wealth for the aggrandizement of interlopers and monarchs back home in sunny europe who would respond by sending 3spd bikes to be sold in the Eaton's catalogue; the local fellow said "Kanata" meaning this here borderless village where my relatives and I practise our ancient and environmentally sustainable lifestyle surrounded by unending nature and a spirit world populated by creatures you just couldn't imagine. Today we celebrate our nation by exploding coloured bombs in the sky and eating backbacon, perogies and cake with maple syrup with some nice beers and we paint the kiddies faces red and white and then we ride vintage Raleighs, Gliders and CCMs to the village square to dance with mounties, loggers and voyageurs. You know, that kind of usual stuff :-)

I'll raise a beer for you :-)

Sounds like the white guys bought Canada from the Kanata natives the same way they bought Manhattan from its Manhatte natives.

My bro' in Manitoba has a shipping drop in Pembina ND. You could ship it there I and I could pick it up for you when I'm up there visiting in July/August, and forward it on; if that seems like a good option to you.

The Continental has 26 by 1 3/8 wheels... Canadian roadsters had 622 wheels and British roadsters had 635 (oversized)... this bike would have competed with the Raleigh Superbe as CCM's top of the line 26 inch model.

It is a really stunning bike and when I get back from my little mini tour will wire up the lights... I also have the rear light and reflector to mount.

I rode my vintage Phillip's Twenty 100 km to come and see my family... enjoyed the wide open spaces, farmers fields, met the biggest friendliest three legged dog, sat and rested by a beaver dam, watched the deer and Herons, listened to the chirp of amorous frogs, and did not even mind the smell of manure... and really appreciated my fenderss.

Yes, it's a nice looking bike. Very nice, and in wonderful shape. I think the Superbe would have had a better saddle, though.

Don't think I've ever seen that fancy of a chain wheel with an Ashtabula crank. Ashtabula cranks, now, there's a mixed blessing. If you have to upgrade the bottom bracket for some reason, it's probably easier to deal with the BB for the Ashtabula than it is with a Nottingham BB shell.

I added the sprung Brooks mattress saddle... the stock saddle on many 60's CCM's was a double sprung Flyte which is a torture device. I still have the Flyte saddle the bike came with and will keep it for authenticity but have no urge to ride it.

That is your quintissential CCM chain wheel with the C C and M... earler models had a cotter crank with the same chainwheel and 50's models had an Astabula crank... these forged models were also made by CCM and are very good quality Astabula cranks.

Would never change them on this bike as it will stay the way it was made.

They're heavy as boulders, but Ashtabula cranks are easy to work on!
