wanted ccm 1977/78 scrambler

Post by big thumper » Tue Oct 14, 2014 12:14 am

hi all new to the forum I have hit that big 50 and looking to have a last go off road in the vintage series so I am looking for a ccm and probably a bsa 350 or similar . I know the ccm is like looking for rocking horse do do I think the later ccms have a bit more clearance as I am 6ft 6 but my search is on .I have probably posted in the wrong section but I can always try again .

Hi big thumper <135 to the forum. To help anyone who might have a bike for sale that you are interested in, where are you in the world. One could assume with a btconnect email address you are somewhere in the UK (but the word assume breaks into three ;-) ). If Minety deems you have posted in the wrong section he will move this post to the correct place and maybe edit out your email address so you don't get too much spam.

Good luck on your search

Rich

<135 to the forum big thumper.

Exactly what Rich said! Please edit your profile and let us know roughly where in the world you are please.

I might move this, but we don't have a "Bikes Wanted" (everyone in the world would post!!), Just "Parts Wanted"....Hurry up and get one then post in "Project bikes" :grin:

hi everyone thanks for replies I am based in the new forest Hampshire England I am probbably asking to much trying to restrict search to these years so I am open to all varriants. I have just had a thought also as I used to know Mike Jackson and he may well know where some of these beauties are hiding as he is a bit of a geru on old English bikes

Hampshire??

There's a whole posse on this forum from Hampshire! That means all the B50/CCMs round there have already been snapped up, or they're so common that there are loads lying around in sheds down there still waiting to be discovered!

Good luck!

Not necessarily, minety could have extinguished the light the way he has abbreviated Hampshire in your location (Hamps :roll: it's Hants ), people might not know where you are ;-). But what can you expect from someone in deepest darkest Wilts :laugh

For the sake of clarity, anyone know why Hampshire is abbreviated to Hants?

Honest... I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tyre. I didn't have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn't come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my bike. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts!

Does that mean I live in Wilpshire?

I am feeling generous towards clarity

Why is Hampshire sometimes called Hants?

"Hampshire" is often abbreviated in written form to "Hants" and which sometimes gives rise to puzzlement. The abbreviated form is derived from the Old English Hantum plus Scir (meaning a district governed from the settlement now known as Southampton) and the Anglo-Saxons called it Hamtunschire. At the time of the Domesday Book (1086) this was compressed to Hantescire

We must be getting very close to an off topic from minety very soon :!:

To try and bring it back on topic big thumper have you been in contact with Terry Weedy and see if he knows of any ccm's for sale

Hants didn't surprise me as I didn't know there was no Ham in Birmingham till Minety dropped Gilkey and I off there in '07. Maybe they've found their Ham by now, I dunno.
Seriously Gerry, thanks for what you did for Mikey and I !

Thanks for getting things back on line Richard , terry sounds like a good starting point I have a garage in Southampton not that far away from Eastleigh, I have been there 30yrs and never heard of him either that or my memory is getting bad.I did see there was a 1973 ccm on flea bay about 97 followers and no bids what was that all about ?I have still got to contact mike Jackson who used to run andover Norton and does a few bits on tv about british bikes . so hopefully some avenues will open up for purchase soon.

As you are in the Forest another avenue might be the Lymington motorcycle and light car club http://www.lymingtonmotorcycle.co.uk/Pages/default.aspx they meet the first Tuesday of each month 8pm at the Royal British Legion, Lymington, that's in the High Street just before you start going down the hill, on the right hand side, down a little alley way (it is sign posted) I know some of the guys (old Esso refinery boys) who go there used to be into off roaders big time and at least one had a CCM (he might still have it). Barry Harvey and Kelvin Gosling, who go there might be good contacts (but CCMs are a bit new for them & they are into Tr****hs), they normally have a stall at Sammy's (Millers) autojumbles. Now there's another thought Bob Stanley, you probably know he is Sammy's right hand man, you could go to the museum and have a word with him as well. As we are working west across the Forest you could also ask Ray at Britbits Barrack Road Christchurch if you could put up a Wanted add in the shop (there are always a few classic bikes for sale on a board there)

hi I am starting to make progress I have seen a nice 1979 for around 8.5k I think that is I bit high but everything looks right.What I am thinking about is I have not ridden race wise for 20 years should I be looking for some thing older to take part in pre 74 / 75 races as the twin shock series still looks fairly quick with a lot of younger riders as I run a garage I was planning on not having to many crashes.
As I understand it a 79 ccm would only be able to compete in twin shock series, the earlier racing with us older chaps seems more appealing a step back in time. So any info on getting in to early scrambles ie clubs and classes to enter would be helpfull

If that 79 is "Jimmy's" bike it is worth it, but perhaps not for you.
