CCM pedals usually found on bikes from the 40's. I had a lot of them over the years. I think they were a cast metal, I never tried a magnet to them. Some referred to them as war time pedals.

Hmmm so I know some Gibson pedals were produced at the CCM factory(s?) and came stock on lots of CCM bikes, think there is a chance these were also Gibson or have you seen reference to them as CCM specific?

All Gibson branded pedals were produced at the CCM factory and so named in honour of the vice president J.W. Gibson. Beyond that, the aluminium "finned" type was made exclusively by CCM for war production. No connection to Gibson...

BTW-the axles in the solid aluminum wartime pedals can be used in the Gibson pedal.

Thank you, for posting that Patent drawing.
I always wondered how you replaced the blocks in those pedals.
Now I can see, that the block has a hollow core allowing it to be squeezed enough to be popped out of the one piece chassis.
Great info!
Now, to find replacement Indian script blocks, and the nerve to try popping one out. Lol!:tearsofjoy:

They look like "Pot Metal" possibly an Aluminum alloy?

Gibson Pedal Catalogue photos from the late twenties. They are Aluminum and were available polished or unpolished for a little while.

Can't really add much to what's been said except all the ones I've seen are always really worn like those in the picture .
So even being made entirely of metal not the most rugged pedal .

Thats a very unique pedal because the CCM catalogue showed them first in 1921 before the patent was issued and all the Gibson pedals made for about the next three decades say patented 1923 on them. Thats a very unique Gibson
