old CCM bike in Montreal.
I juste bought this old CCM bike, and I was wondering wich model and wich year it was.
I did some research on the internet, and it look like a CCM 1924, but I'm not sure, and I don't know where to find the serial number...
I'm planning on restaure it, but I'have no experience with antique bikes, so I'll maybe need a few tips.
Everything seems to be original, except the painting, but I think I can find the originial colour, under the dirty black latex painting. The pedals are maybe not original too (plastic pedals on a bike that old seems bizarre to me...). I also know the wheels are 28''.
I also want to know how much it worth ?
If it doesn't worth a lot, I'll maybe do another paint, to get a "cleaner" bike, but if it is a valubale collection bike, I don't what to do things wrong, so maybe you guys can tell me if I have to be carefull with some things.
Sorry if my english is sometimes not so good, but I'm french !

Hi Pierre. Welcome to Bike Forums. I see you've posted this question in the Classic and Vintage Forum. You should get plenty of answers there. However I remembered a guy posting here in the Eastern Canada forum that was into vintage CCM bikes. Here's his thread. He hasn't posted in a while, however you might be able to get hold of him through email or a PM.
Thanks alfster !
I just send him a PM, hope he'll be able to help me

No problem. Btw, if you don't get a response in the Classic and Vintage forum, try bumping your thread. They sometimes go unanswered if the knowledgeable people don't see your thread.
Bonjour Pierre....Not sure what year bike that is.. Buit it looks like a bike I use to own as a kid when I was 10 years old or more.. I'm 62 years of age now.. By the eway I use to live in Montreal (N.D.G.) before..So I know a little of Montreal Or should I say a lot....Hope you enjoy your new old bike.....John
The rear hub says 1937, so it's really an old bike !
