I have recently been fortunate enough to purchase a 1941 (based on serial number which begins with 'e') CCM Flyte. It does not have the sexy curvy forks of the earlier years.

My understanding is that there were some problems with the iconic forks and so production of them was suspended towards the end of the production run. Or maybe they had simply run out of them and were using up extra frames etc.

In any case, I want to know how original the rest of the incomplete project is, - it is without fenders. I believe that it has the correct crank and sprocket. I have purchased a nice set of Gibson pedals. I am told that certain years had Endrich rims, but I don't know which years and which rims. Same with hubs. The year of manufacture determined the correct year of hub, but I don't know what is correct for that year.

I may be interested in purchasing a set of forks (the iconic ones) if that was an optional upgrade in 1941. If it wasn't, I still may be interested, just to tell the story of CCM 's contribution to the streamline era, and retain the forks that came with the bike as "the original supplied".

So, information welcome, as well as leads to the potential purchase of a set of iconic forks. I am aware that the seat shown is not the coveted Troxel with the integrated toolkit. I am thinking that this seat is probably original and the "budget version" for that year, as well.

thanks
