This is a 1967 CCM "Centennial".. (Canada 1867-1967 - hence the name)
I got this bike gifted to me by a co-worker.. I loved the lines, but it needed a LOT of work.
The Frame was straight and the tyres weren't too bad, as far as being true.. but they did need all new spokes.
The rear drive is a 2 speed automatic - "Torpedo"
The original colour is a copper/gold.. and the rust just started blending together as one... Not liking the Burnt-Orange colour, I went to base metal and offset with the red. I feel it gives it a "1919" type look - helped by the oversized the tyres. I redid the original seat and padded it with a memory-type foam.
