    It appears that the stripe is a match to the paint used on the fenders. Its closer to a cream than a white

    I stand corrected. The rims are blue with a siver stripe in the centre that is edged in red. If your centres appear white, it is possible that they are faded.

    I'm still looking to buy Jones seats for my Sunshine Waterloo bikes. I just bought one on Ebay that has a really nice stamp. It even clearly says Stratford Canada on it, making it a really nice piece of Canadian cycling history. However, it's missing the mounting hardware that attaches the seat frame to the seat post. It was priced accordingly, but that missing piece is unique to the Jones saddle (see patent) and I can't mount it on a bike without it. It would be a shame to have to take apart another Jones saddle to make one good one out of two. It would be really great if someone had a Jones in very poor condition or Jones parts in a bin somewhere that I could buy to get this saddle on the road. Please contact me if you do.

    I have an identical bike. My bike has a triplex crank and Gibson pedals. Most 1942 higher quality CCM bikes have these interesting painted rims. In 1941 CCM started making their own Westwood style rims and stopped buying rims from Dunlop. This meant that they were no longer buying the 28 X 1 3/4 W.O. Made in England rims. These rims were chrome plated and CCM added a large red centre stripe on them that was edged in white. For 1942, in order to distinguish the rims supplied with the higher priced models. CCM painted on a large blue centre stripe, edged in white, over a silver background. To the best of my knowledge, this was done only for 1942.
