video ccm in action

Project? mmm! Projectile i think, and how very refreshing to see a ccm being raced with a very capable rider. I hope this will encourage more owners to bring them out of obscurity and just have a good time. Like the rider in this video i would say .

Here's a clip of Jimmy Aird on a CCM, which I believe is packed full of PES goodies! Tell us more Mark! I saw it was for sale at the Classic Off Road Show at Telford. I thought it was overpriced till I saw the clip.

Ed,

Nope, you wouldn't think it was a guy of about 60 just from watching the clip.
I do like to see a BSA or CCM whipping them strokers! :mrgreen:

Jim needs a sponsor, that poor bike has missed about 3 rebuilds now :!: The engine was one of the first 4valves I done, latest spec ones are much quicker.

The price he was asking was proberly a bit high considering it's £16k for a new one.

So if you want to help poor old Jim ride his bike, PM me and if another funds can be raised I'll make it happen.

Mark,

How big are the Flywheels in that engine?

A funny question I know. I have a friend who is light Flywheel obsessed and as soon as he saw the bike at the show his first words were "I bet it's got minute Flywheels". This obsession came about in the late 70's/early 80's when he was in Kim Covell's (he who is pictured in Rolling Thunder on his wedding day with Bride + CCM) workshop. On the wall (should have been the clue) was a lightened Works CCM crank. Kim says it made the bike an animal or some such term and needed a new primary chain after each meeting.

Now since that day he has dreamn't of light flywheels, even planning to get a dural set made for his 320 B25. He can't seem to get his head round the good that a bit of flywheel weight does i.e. traction, smooth running of the engine etc.

Yes the flywheels are light, but silly Tom. No problems with primary chains, they do a season. My short stroke cranks were developed with Jim in mind. Don't stand too close to that bike when reving hard as I don't know why that tired old crank hasn't exploded yet. Like I said, it's seriosly overdue lots of pennies being spent on it.
