    UNKNOWN BIKE WITH CCM HERCULES SADDLE
    I am currently working on a TOC bike which I have had for many years..unfortunately there is no head badge, ergo, what is it? It had a torn head tube, which I replaced. Has CCM Hercules saddle, ND model A rear hub, Columbia pedals, wood handle bar, period fenders, rack..all of which appear to be original to the bike. see att pics, help appreciated.

    Unfortunately, I can't offer any help with identification of the maker of your bike, but I must say, that when I read your description, and saw the mention that you replaced the "torn headtube", I figured that you must be mistaken.
    Then I looked at your picture, and sure enough, the head tube has been replaced!
    I'm not sure, how a head tube gets torn, but yours must have needed to be replaced.
    Very impressive work!
