CCM Delivery

My father rode a similar bike to deliver groceries for the I.G.A. on Roncesvalles.

  1. 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.

    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”.
