Jumbo CCM

Classic Dirtbike - - Dirttalk - Chris Tay­lor Email

I thought you might be in­ter­ested in pho­tos of my CCM. I have had this ma­chine for 20 or more years and when bought it was need­ing tlc. As is of­ten the case with such pur­chases it was left in a shed for 15 years! A few years ago into the work­shop it came and with more time to spend on 'im­por­tant things in life' I took the whole thing to bits, and re­placed any­thing nec­es­sary.

I had a lot of help ini­tially with ad­vice on who to con­tact – firstly Austin Clewes of CCM who gave me de­tailed in­for­ma­tion that the ma­chine is a 1990 350cc Ro­tax Jumbo en­gined bike, and only 50 were pro­duced. Mine is num­ber CCM 35.

Fur­ther in­for­ma­tion came from Peter Knight of An­dover Nor­ton re gas­kets and seals – a very help­ful gent. An in­ter­net search by my wife found Mr Michael Ko­vac in Aus­tria, who was also very help­ful in sup­ply­ing every con­ceiv­able part in­for­ma­tion within 24 hours.

The ma­chine has stood in the work­shop for the past few years and I feel sure that other peo­ple would be in­ter­ested in see­ing it too. If you could in­clude it in the CDB mag­a­zine I would re­ally be de­lighted.
