Mick,

You make a good point. I think CCM is overlooked by us "young" folks because of the spotty later period of the brand. In the early 70s when I was a tike, the worst bikes you could imagine carried the CCM marque. I'm sure Mike Barry has much fonder feelings of them from the period before my time. I know he has several in his collection.

Surely any list of Canadian builders of note should include C.C.M. and William "Doc" Morton whose frames were the first choice of numerous track stars in North America. I thought Doc Morton use to incorporate the riders initials on the fork crown?
