Post Listing Update: Not surprisingly, this CCM did not get any interest at the asking price of $37,500. It’s been relisted but I’ll only feature this bike again if the seller offers a serious discount in the future.
In 1971, Alan Clews founded CCM (Clews Competition Machines) by taking advantage of BSA’s decision to shut down their competition department. Clews was able to snag the entire inventory of BSA’s works parts and used them to build world-beating MX bikes. As his stock of BSA parts ran out, Alan developed his own. Here’s a restored example of one of the most popular CCW models, their 500cc MXer based on, obviously, a BSA motor. The asking price is hefty but you can always flirt with the “Buy It Now” button…
These were seriously pricey bikes – nearly double the MSRP of any other European brand at the time. Alan was able to justify these prices as he was one of the few builders that could put out 4-strokes that competed with 2-strokes, and CCM achieved several top five finishes in the 500cc MX world championship in the 70s.
This example has been recently restored to a claimed “like new” condition. Find this CCM for sale in Katy, Texas with a BIN of $37,500 or best offer
