My father rode a similar bike to deliver groceries for the I.G.A. on Roncesvalles.
For comparison, $57.50 in 1955 would be worth $512.00 today..

The CCM for 57.50 at the time that was huge money with all things being equal.
However todays inexpensive bikes sold at mass market stores are complete junk
but at a low price.

I guess the delivery boy’s pants weren’t important…

Chain guards were for sissies. My solution was to stuff my pant cuff into my sock. Or you could buy a “pant leg cuff clip”.
