CCM winter project

My cousin gave me his early 70s CCM that has not been ridden in decades. He said he used it a bit when he bought it new and his kids got some use out of it but by all the wear indicators there is not a heck of a lot of miles on it.
5 speed derailleur with stem shifter, Ashtabula crank and pressed fork tips all point to low end of the spectrum but this is from a time when low end bikes were perfectly serviceable.
the 26x13/8 steel rims show lots of rust but I will see how they clean up before I trash them.
the wheels will be rebuilt with new spokes and if the rims can be salvaged I will reuse them, otherwise I have CR18 I can use.
Thankfully, the seat post and stem are not stuck so that’s a good start.





the paint looks good and most of the rust appears to be surface so I think it will clean up nicely.
The dynamo works but this light will never cut it so I think I will take it off.

That SunTour will work very well for you once cleaned up. Overall a nice looking machine.

btw: glad to see you posting again Dan. Seems like forever…

Nice bike and a worthy project, in my opinion. That said, being a vintage road bike enthusiast, I opted to give this "found at the dump" lovely clean old roadster to a friend who has given me more than I have given him. I should add that the pictures show the bike at the dump and next to my wood pile exactly 'as found". I didn't even dust it off...

Apart from the missing chain guard on mine it looks like the same bike.

It looks like the rims will clean up, but then then again, I am only looking at pictures. This isn't the fancy race bike that we BikeForum C&V members usually like here, but a perfectly good town bike, errand runner, sturdy and reliable bike.

Knowing a bit about your knowledge and experience, this will be interesting. Sun Ringle seems to have shifted their priorities away from making the CR18 for 26" x 1-3/8" in favor of more popular sizes. There may be other alternatives, especially if you are willing to order from the UK. Perhaps Toronto is better ISO 590 territory than the US right now.

Please keep us updated on the project @Dan Burkhart .

I already have some CR18 26x13/8 rims laying around if it comes to that, we will see.
Also have not ruled out sticking a Sturmey Archer 3 speed in it.

The parts are cleaning up quite nicely. All the bearings including hubs, BB and headset look great. The grease was pretty much petrified but none of the surfaces took any damage.
The rims are deeply rust pitted though so it’s going to get new ones.

Similar build going on here right now.

Been forty forevers since I posted here, too. Been dealing with too many health issues the last few years. End of organ recital right now.

Looks good so far Dan, the clean up and polish really are going nicely. This really hit home when I saw what you are rebuilding/ rehabbing, must be something in the air causing “around town” stirrings. I’ll be interested to see the frame set cleaned and polished up, should be a great looking ride.

I agree with the Sun Tour components for your drive train. I went this route on the ‘71 Schwinn Super Sport I’m building right now. Kept the Ashtabula crank, and Schwinn rings with the correct protector. But, I am using Sun Tour derailleurs front and rear. Managed to find a front with the 1-1/8” dia. clamp band, using a VGT long cage on the rear.

Keep on updating as you proceed with the build, please!

Bill

Longer than I planned, or figured it might be. After the last round of therapy for the PD, I decided to get into the ‘71 Schwinn Super Sport frame I purchased from one of the gang here. Been collecting mostly original Schwinn stuff through eBay, a few parts at a time. Almost through painting the frame and fork, and rehabbing all the components then polishing the chrome out. Sure is different than doing an all Campy Italian build. Still have a Bottecchia (sp) frame and fork to build up for the wife. Yes, it’s the CroMor I received from one of the gang here🤭

I ran into something unusual today. Cleaning up the Suntour stem shifter and found the friction washer is branded Shimano.

That's odd. Maybe your cousin or a bike shop lost the original washer at some point and bike shop replaced it with a Shimano?
