    CCM bike value?

    There are enough nice original paint CCMs around - still with factory pin stripes - that one like this has value as a parts bike. In my area, $50-100 CDN. p.s. The fenders don't match. I put this one (1952) on the road with all these parts for under $250:

    I think that badge piece is destined to go on this bike! Either you sell me the badge or I sell you the frame. What do you think?

    Thanks for the very cool posts! Who likes a good mystery? A piece of paper fell out of the seat tube. G.R. Simmonds (?) is long gone, but where did she/he live? What the heck does it say? 2 Frofk Blvd? Fiofk? Fofk, Fosk, Fiosk? ...Is it Blvd? or Bay? Did the person maybe spell it wrong? I've...

    I recently bought this bike, and to my surprise, I cannot find other White Sewing Machine Co. bikes on the CABE or after a Google Search. It must be a rare bike. I hope this thread will become be a central place for posting, discussing and viewing anything tied to WSM Co. of Cleveland Ohio (see...

    Newbie with a White bicycle

    So I'm the new caretaker (owner) of this lovely bike. To my surprise, I cannot find other White Sewing Machine Co. bikes on the CABE or after a Google Search. It must be a rare bike. I'm going to start a new thread (pun not intended) for WSM bikes in the Antique pre 1933 Forum. I will post more...

    Elgin Bicycle - Can you tell me what I have?

    No need to restore! The paint just needs a good cleaning. If you want to ride it, the bearings in the hubs and crank could be cleaned and regreased, new inner tubes, some lube on the chain. You could have the handlebar rechromed but many people like the "patina" look, and if it's all shiny it...

    Newbie with a White bicycle

    Hi Dave, nice find! It's an old one. The fenders (maybe CCM?) and rims say 1930s but the rest of it says 1890s. It probably had a wood rear fender originally, wood rims, and maybe a wood chain guard. Then a few decades later someone decided to revive it with new steel parts to replace the wood...

    1891-1895 Pneumatic & Crusty - Can Anyone i.d.?

    Hi, sorry for the delay. No problem, it cost me $325 CDN, which at today's exchange rate works out to $230 US. This also included blasting the pedal axles (not shown). As plating shops go, this guy's very reasonable. At the end of the project I'll post a list of all the expenses. I'm sure in...

    MARINONI

    I paid $600 CDN for mine, from an ad in Kijiji. His asking price was $650. The serial number starts with 90 which makes me wonder if it was made in 1990. The decals are similar to yours. I would pay $600 for yours and sell mine possibly.

    Some parts back from the plating shop. I'm truly amazed at what can be done with such badly rusted and pitted parts:
