Cruisin' on my Bluebird
unknown brand, Canadian brand bicycle .... IMO
can anyone ID?
looks to be Canadian made but no badge and no badge holes! Which is odd (had to remove all the paint on the headtube to make sure, I was certain they were hiding behind the paint)
K serial number, if we follow the CCM logic, it would make it 1927
looks to have CCM clincher wood rims
but not a CCM built frame, the characteristics and construction are different and the bike has a sturdier build
rear New Hercules hub.
nice straight complete bike, putting a name on it would be nice
very nice seat
original Dunlop made in Toronto tires
could easily be a rider with new tires

Look Ma, No Hands!
I was gonna say a Humphrey or possibly a McCready?

Those 2 compagnies attached badges to their bike. This one doesn't have badge holes.
Someone guessed Alex Kay from Toronto. Kay had decals as headbadge.

Wore out three sets of tires already!
I said maybe Kay, but now I'm thinking it's a Planet. I have a late 1920s Planet with a similar frame and the same fenders. Planet used decals, not badges. Last fall I moved to a house with a smaller garage, so I haven't been on the CABE in a while and my stuff is in storage in different places but I'll try to find it and compare it for you. I have a late '20s Planet catalogue that I need to find too.

thanks Brian, any input is appreciated
Kay and Planet are 2 companies that I had never heard of
