I haven’t been able to find any images of Canada Cycle & Motor Co’s Cleveland model online. Cleveland seems to be better known as an American-built motorcycle. A 2002 post on the OldRoads forum refers to a 1929 version of the Cleveland that had a double bar and double fork (double fork? whatever does that mean?), and says there’s one in the collection at the Canadian Museum of Science. That poster probably means the Canada Science & Technology Museum in Ottawa, who say that CCM named their version of the Cleveland after forerunner company Lozier’s version …and there are some gorgeous photos of a Lozier Cleveland with an extremely similar headbadge in a forum post over at the CABE. I love the simple black paint job, with the pop of colour behind the pierced metal headbadge – yum. A single-bar version of the Cleveland similar to what’s in those photos is described in this auction of a CCM collection by a Guelph-area auctioneer.
