CCM Cleveland - Vintage and Model Type...

Today, in knee deep snow, I picked up an old CCM Cleveland and a lovely Velo Sport Prestige. I know a fair bit about the Velo Sport but little about the Cleveland.

As found, the Cleveland appears to be original with the exception of the wheels, which are 26" and incorrect. Does anyone have any idea pertaining to the vintage and model. By model, I mean, was there ever a Cleveland road bicycle? Anyway, have a look at the pictures and any information would be appriciated...

Nice acquisition! Cleveland was originally the brand of the H.A. Lozier company of Cleveland, Ohio. They opened a Toronto factory in 1895 and the Canadian operation was one of the orignal companies that banded to form CCM in 1899. The Cleveland brand survived into the 1940s.

The presence of the Weston headbadge indicates it is no older than 1917, while the triplex hanger, if OEM, places it no older than 1923, if I recall correctly. I believe the non-camel back, lugless frame places it 1920s, though this is stretching my CCM knowledge. Did you find a serial number?

During this era, I believe there was only a roadster model (in men's and female versions) though there were at least two different grades of component packages that could be selected.

I had a look for the serial number, T-Mar, but to no avail. I looked under the bottom bracket, which was covered with dried and frozen sludge, but there was no number to be seen, once I cleaned the yuck off.

Randy, the few pre-war CCM I've seen have had the serial stamped on or in the region of the seat lug. You may want to look there. BTW, I had a closer examination of the photos and it appears to be lugged, correct? The head tube photo tripped me up with the apparent absence of lugs but now I see that the head tube and lugs may be a single piece? Regardless, I'm still thinking 1920s.

Found the serial number stamped into the top of the seat post lug. The number reads - W11729. Hope that is a help and thanks to anyone who can offer pertinent information.
