I think this is going to be a pretty basic restoration. Everything looks original, down to the grips and tires.View attachment 191590 View attachment 191589

Sachs Komet hub date code J= 1966. I'm going with that for the bikes' age

Oh, I was going to comment on how I thought the C C M cut into the front sprocket was a great detail on this bike,

I thought the CCM stood for Classy Canadian Marie!

For what? Model T and A or what??
Could be any kind. Springs from a old sofa, screen door, small tractor or trampoline. One of those old chest exerciser things. Any of those could be used for a bike springer. Somehow.

All this thinking about who she wanted to be got Sweet Marie wondering about who she was. She looked into her DNA and discovered that although she thought she was an all Canadian girl, there was a little American in her too!View attachment 194808
Around the 60 things got tight at CCM so they started sourcing stuff out. Older CCM bearings were made in Canada and there twice the size
