Cul-De-Sac CCM 404

This still didn’t do enough to boost sales which were awfully low.

The CCM 404 was headlined as the maker or breaker of CCM and it ended up being called by MCN “the best CCM ever produced”.

But the best bike went to the worst position with not much profit and quickly CCM were in as bad a place as they ever had been. The lack of profits for the investors meant a lack of interest and they calle din the liquidators. 50 people were made redundant. CCM had hit a dead end.

CCM Royal Parade

Investors changed and they should have been reassured by some awesome PR and publicity. To celebrate Queen Lizzy’s 50 years not out on the throne there were parades all along the mall to Buckingham Palace. In the British bikes section of the parade CCM headed the pack with Bike magazine journalist Dale Lomas pulling a wheelie the full length of the mall finishing with a stoppie right in front of the Royal box.

CCM R30

The Suzuki powered CCM R30 was very well received and the demand of 40 bikes a week said so. The next model, designed by brought in engineer Cooper didn’t do so well, in fact it was scrapped completely and they needed a replacement.

Alan Clews saved the day again with one of Austin’s previous design blueprints. Cooper resigned a year later.
