ccm tour de canada

can anyone remember what this retailed for? if there's any document on the web that states the actual price? i know on randy's site he says it's somewhere around 600 bucks back then. But i need to find some picture or catalogue that says this.

here's the bike i'm talking about:

Our best hope is T-mar, let's see what he has to say.
Couple of points in the catalogue specs got my attention.
"Crankset... 50x40"... I thought 41T was the absolute minimum for 144 BCD cranks...?
"Kickstand not included"... let's hope not, and also that one never gets added!

+1. I need to know what year. Prices ranged from about $500-$600CDN. You can't date these via the serial number, so you'll need to post pics and/or pull the date codes off the Campagnolo rear derailleur, crankarms, hub locknuts and Maeda freewheel.

BTW, why the need for MSRP? It's a bit irrelevant in the C&V resale world. Are you buying or selling?

Old's Cool, the OEM chainrings were 46/50T paired with a 14-18T freewheel. Ridiculously tight for anything but flat criteriums and even then the 50/14T was too low, unless you were a junior. Poor specing on CCM's part.

Yeah, that seems a bit wacky for anything but a race stage that is flat to moderately uphill...
Easy enough to modify of course, but not much excuse for such gearing from the factory at that price point.

I was trying to prove someone wrong. Owner claims he bought it for $3000 "back in the day" so I was gonna prove him wrong.

$3000! I was selling CCM during the boom and sure wish I could have gotten a $2600 profit margin on a TdC. I don't ever recall the TdC going for over $600 CDN before it was discontinued at the end of 1976. You could buy just about any Italian brand with a full Campagnolo NR/Record group for under $1000 CDN. To exceed that barrier, it had to be something pretty exotic, like a Speedwell or have a pantographed Super Record group.
