HELP --Vintage Eaton's Bike that needs identifying

All I know about the bike that it was made in England for the Eatons company of Canada and that it has a leather seat with pocket behind it and is black in color with red and gold pinstriping. The front emblem says Commander under the crest. I think it is from the 1940s or 1950s but I am not sure. The serial # BL 1260. I wish to know more information if anyone can help, thanks! P.S a few pics are included with this post.

Ok so you posted this a LONG time ago. I hope you still have it! I too just purchased an Eaton Commander. A friend of mine who is a vintage bike enthusiast said it would appear that our frames have been made by CCM (with accessories like coaster and rims made in England). I noticed my serial number was NN1507. We found this website that gave us details on CCM bikes year made according to serial numbers. Since mine started with an N, it dated at 1929. So exciting news for you! You started with a B which could mean your bike is a 1922! Now just remember we aren't 100% on it being made by CCM. But I do know that finding information on these Eaton Commanders is tough to find.

Here's the link for more info:

I keep posting pics of this bike. Very faintly, I see Commander on the brass headbadge. Maybe Wing Commander...very faint. I think WWII is the right era. Do you have a pic?

Holy crap...2005! Zombies were barely invented then. Apologies to George Romero.
