Ccm bicycle serial number dating chart dating fro married men
Given that CCM didn't use it in the first three rounds, my current view is that any samples are incompletely stamped versions of another letter. CCM catalogues of the era are very poor in terms of pictures and specifications.
I posted my findings after checking my 50 bikes from after 1960 and conparing with the various catalogs and posters that I have. It was an attempt ot start further conversation, not claim 100% correctness.
Can anyone definitively say what year this might denote, or could this be a stamp indicating its Zenith destiny. The E is positioned below the number, so I presume its the 12,723rd bike made in 1953, since the coaster brake hub was patented in '37, thereby ruling out the earlier 1920's E production run.
Is there a CCM serial # decode page I haven't found yet? Speaking of hubs, how are you supposed to inject oil in the weird brass hub nipple-there is no apparrent hinged lid as any other I've seen-is there a ball/spring like a zerk fitting? I have serious reservations about the above referenced Yahoo Groups chart being 100% correct.
Or maybe it will be as confusing as all of the 70's Raleigh chatter that appears on the Chopper sites. I would like to have some pictures of my CCM concorde purple 1972 or 1973 because I bought one but I suspect that the bike isn't all original.
:-) I have seen some claimed I-series serial numbers too. So with the pictures I could see what pieces are not original and I'll do the necessary. Thanks Bikedenis, The Concorde did not debut unitl 1973, so it's definitely not a 1972 model.It is an E series, as is stamped on the top of the vertical pipe.
