    Requesting help with frame identification

    Here's something I picked up lately, bike came with a very eclectic mix of parts including a few nice things that were worth the asking price, wondering if anyone here can suggest an identity for this very basic frame. Maybe someone will recognize the lugs.

    Paint is a mystery, at first I thought it was a basic DIY job because it's very rough (if it wasn't for the fade I'd think it was brushed-on housepaint) and there's no sign of any decals. But... there's a serial number visible, so maybe the paint is original.

    Specs:
    Probably hi-ten steel to judge from the weight
    Takes 25.8 seatpost
    Japanese threaded headset and bottom bracket
    Fork with decent chrome
    120mm rear spacing

    Pictures:

    Hi lasauge,

    It looks like a 1970s CCM from Canada. Possibly a Turismo model.

    The lugs match several CCM models: Turismo, Torino 76, Pursuit 5, and Concorde.

    The rear dropouts are also a match for CCM.

    There appears to be a sleeve at the top of the seat tube, where the seat post is inserted. It is not really a sleeve. Again a match for CCM.

    The serial number location and format is the same as a Torino 76.

    I think the fork is not original, but I am not sure.

    Behind the BB shell between the chain stays there is an oval "tube" for mounting a kickstand. On your frame this appears to have been cut out.

    Looks repainted to me. Two colour paint schemes where not common in the 1970s.

    Many CCM headbadges where riveted on. I don't see any rivet holes on your head tube.

    Other CCM decals where stick on and easily removed.

    CCM made most of its frames in Canada. Parts came from Europe and Japan.

    Thanks Hummer, I did some searching and a more than a couple of the parts that came on this frame match up to stock examples of the Turismo, so that's probably what it is.

    If anyone is in Colorado and would like to take this frame off my hands, it's yours gratis - I am keeping the fork though.
