It's a CCM 'Falcon' 18 speed. No build thread on it, but here's a couple of pics:
Nice looking old mountain bike CT, i have an older Montgomery Wards Mountain bike that lloks to be a very similar set up, it also has the center pull brakes and is a fairly heavy very solid feeling frame kinda like an older Roadmaster USA made mountain bike I also have that was my first motorized bike build.
These kinda frames make some very solid bikes....not the low down cruiser feel but overall sturdy good riding bikes.
