Can't say that I know anything about the wee bike but this CCM catalog might help point to the answer...

Hope it is a help.

Kia - if you've seen any Kia (car company) commercials, the reason they have the kid riding the bike in those is because Kia started out as a bicycle manufacturing company.

Ex Pres-That's what I was thinking after posting it (and seeing the commercial again,LOL)...You know th eacronym thing for car companies? Like F.O.R.D. could be either "Found On Road Dead" or "First On Race Day"? I had one KIA experience...a bad one,it stands for "Keep It Away" or "Killed In Action" Thanks for the info though,much appreciated

Randyjawa: Pretty good site,I saw a few on there with similar style frames. Sent him an email,thanks again

The KIA looks like it's from the 70's. Everyone wanted a Stingray or a copy thereof.

That's what I was thinking too from the looks/style of it. It's stamped 1982,though that's a sticker on the seat tube,so it may have been a bit earlier. Thanks,my friend

That KIA is a pretty kool looking litle bike. Cottered rather than an ashtabula crank, nice color and the paint looks pretty good and more importantly your son looks pretty happy with it. Maybe 65er will weigh in on the CCM, I think he's pretty fimiliar with them.

The CCM is too nice to "ratrod out", even though it looks like the red came from a rattle can. I'd just clean it up, go through all of the bearings and ride it.

In case you don't know, CCM was the Schwinn of Canada, metaphorically speaking.

That Kia looks like the "Convertible" type bike... I bet you can remove the "top tube" to "convert" it into a girl's bike, or put it back on to convert it to a boy's bike. It's adorable and he sure looks happy with it.

Nice finds for the money!

My brother has a couple of Kia bikes that he dragged back from Korea when he was working over there. One is similar to the Japanese Mamachari bikes.

The handle bars on the CCM are great, I'd just clean it an ride it, very classic and probably a fun ride around town.
