Hi!

Your bike's production date is 1972.
This bike has made in the Csepel factory, Budapest. The Hungarian name was Csepel "Tihany".
Just look:

Hi Nathan,
Nice bike. I have one myself. If you want to sell any of the parts off of it let me know. I am looking for fenders, wheels. You can email me [email protected] anytime, I will always be interested in picking up new parts. I am in the Vancouver area.

Thanks,
Jason

I have one of the bikes identical to the brown one in the picture and it is like that other post described with the pouch on the back. Tied in the rafters of a house I just bought and it has never been used because the rubber pieces from the mold when the tire was made are not even worn off. Where do you find the serial number ? I will look and maybe somebody can figure out what year it is. I am on Vancouver island.

I have the very same bike. I found it on a bicycle horder's pile, I have only ever seen one here in Australia and it has Californian licence sticker on it from 1974. Mine is rusty, I call her Lucy. I am in the process of restoring her for a charity road race. I want to put balloon tyres (2") but I don't know if I have the clearance between the fenders, I don't want to spend on tyres for them not to fit. I got some skull x bones red rims off a mate and plan on white tyres, I am cleaning up the rust but I am not going to repaint anything (except the white on chaingaurd and rear fender) probably going to get some pinstriping done on her and have Lucy painted on either the fender or the left side of the crank.

Hello. Yes I agree I don't think the bike is from the 50's. Mom dad and I bought 3 of them in 1974. 2 blue/white and 1 copper/white. They had whitewall tires, baskets, the same chain guard. We used to ride all around Kits beach, Jericho, English bay and Stanley park. They were comfortable. Back in the day you had to register your bike with the police and they would give you a sticker with the year on it. Hope you enjoy them as much as I did. They are beautiful bikes. Jo
