1973 CCM Marauder

(Click for full photo)

1973 CCM Marauder This is a 1973 CCM Marauder. It was bought in Winnipeg, Canada from the original owner in the spring of 2003. It was last licensed in 1975 (still on the bike). Original features include a Sturmey Archer 3spd, Tractor Tread rear tire, triple mount forks and dual rear brakes. The photo was taken by me (the new owner) in the fall of 2003, on the day I picked it up.


  1. It's nice to see my bike is "Bike of the Day". My email has long since changed, but I still have the bike and about another 50 "keepers" to keep it company. :-)

  2. I absolutely love your Marauder. I saw it in a Goodyear tire store in Toronto in 1973 or 74 and begged my father to buy it. But it was like $80 - a huge sum for a kid's bike. He bought me a wrecked Peugeot 10-speed from someone at work instead. Never forgot about the Marauder, though. I showed your photo to my kids and they can't believe how cool it is. They envy me for growing up in the 1970s. Between the Marauder and Led Zep, it was easily the best time for a kid to grow up. Okay, my eyes are starting to sting...
