Finally after some adjustments and help from fellow Canuck pal Ken ( CABER ccmerz) who painted/re-created sold to me this 1938 Custom CCM Flyte, and I tweaked a few parts to fit my vision.( just needs a toolbox saddle...hint...hint.... yeah...I'm in the line up too...lol..) It had FAT FRANKS ( too FAT for forks) and I put the airflow bars, Gibson pedals, Bevin bell, knuckle guards, deco stem, hubcaps, correct Schwalbe 28 inch tires, and Ken built/painted up some CCM wheels I just put on yesterday. Man...what a ride!!!

What a ride indeed! Absolutely stunning!!!
Almost makes me want to stop posting photos anymore, especially of relatively insignificant machines.
Almost, but not quite.
Here's the Vindec from yesterday, late morning.....

Out on the Orange again today, but no photos taken.
Seriously @Nashman, you should warn us before posting more photos of that CCM!

Beautiful CCM Nashman! Fantastic. It rained hard early, then cleared up and started blowing 30. Most of my ride north up the coast I got sandblasted by relentless wind, so I flipped it on the prewar Schwinn Excelsior and ran fast to the south, but was looking for something/anything to get in back of after reversing direction again. I endeavored to persevere.
This particular bike I don't get much chance to ride, but have taken a keen liking to it after a couple days back in my posession. The wheels are light and stiff so the bike feels really fast, smooth and quiet. It loves to be leaned over hard on good pavement while hanging on to the end of the bars and weighting the back of the saddle. All these old bikes have distinct personalities and are a joy to ride.
