Looks very similar to a Schwinn Camelback, not that hard to find in the USA since Schwinn made about 1.4 zillion of everything... Speedsters (the actual model name) came in 26" and 27" tire variations.

Yep, that was why I chose the CCM version, I like the speedster frames, but you just don't see them up here. CCMs are in every barn and garage up here

They're not as common as cantilever frames but they're around if you have the dimes. Not as pricey around here since I'm only 60 miles from Chicago but common folk see Schwinn and think even the china junk is priceless. Which only proves how well made most of the Chicago Schwinns were, china junk is living off of Chicago built's reputation.

It is a Supercycle camelback, made by CCM. I assume they're tough to find outside Canada

It has Raleigh forks...so, it could be a Raleigh. They made these under many names, and before TI there were similar Phillips, Rudge, Hercules and more.

That particular example is all kinds of parts. Orange frame, red fork, blue guard... But the link had more pics, there was a badge

It is a raliegh. Raleigh made supercycle for Canadian Tire. CCM didn't start making bikes for Canadian Tire till the late 70s and mostly kids bikes.Cottered crank too CCM used almost all one peice.

Fab up some angular fenders attached to the wood floor bed. Maybe a spindly front wheel, cheaters on back...

There is still a Tube Investments of India that owns a bunch of stuff.
