Race or Ride for Fun With CCM Motorcycles
CCM, or Clews Competition Machines, grew out of Alan Clews' obsession with all things motorcycle. Clews, who is a longtime participant in competitive motorcycle racing, started building his own racing bikes in his garage in the early 1970s, and soon he was building bikes for other racers, subsequently creating CCM. CCM is now synonymous with unique bikes that are sought after by bikers looking for a CCM Spitfire for sale or any new or used CCM motorcycles for sale on eBay.Who are the clientele for CCM motorcycles for sale?
Over the years, CCM bikes have been used by serious racers in motocross, trials, flat-track, supermoto, and road racing competitions. These bikes are known for their tough and thoughtful design, and motorcycle enthusiasts have developed into a cult following. Originally, CCM bikes were more for competitions and various racing sports, but a market demand for adventure bikes has introduced newer models used more for riding the roads.Models of CCM bikes over the years
