    When I first saw this bike, my first thought is that I wasn't interested in buying it as it was outside of my collecting focus. All my bikes are coaster-brake bikes, as I like their simple, elegant look, without a mess of cables going every which way. I prefer 28" wood rim bikes, but have a few post-war, Canadian-made, 28" and 26" balloon bikes. But then the image of this bike had stuck in my brain, and it started to grow on me. It was still available, so I grabbed it. Original everything, including the tires. Yesterday I found the instruction manuals for the light and the 3-speed hub tucked into a match box in the touring bag. It rides beautifully, and everything works, front and rear light, speedometer, S-A hub. I love the colour scheme, and it's the only white, pre-1980s CCM I've ever seen. I haven't even cleaned up the chrome yet, this is the way it came. Photos: CCMsabre1.jpg CCMsabre2.jpg CCMsabre3.jpg CCMsabre4.jpg CCMsabre5.jpg
