    Here is a listing that is near my niece's house in Iowa. I really like the mid 60's lightweights, and would love to grab this purple one. The research I have done looks like the violet collegiate was only available 65 - 67. Is that correct? I am going to ask the seller for a photo of the head tube serial so I can verify. If this is a mid 60's Collegiate, it is in really good condition. It has the wrong handlebars, beacause I think they didn't offer the sport model until later.

    Other than the handlebars and brake levers, what else do you see wrong? Needs a new decal on the chain guard. Frame decal looks good, paint looks to be in good shape. I can't tell what size the frame is, just from the picture.

    Seat and rear derailer are wrong too. The guard on these were silk screened not decal, parts can be replaced, even decals, but og screens are one time deal. i.d. hold out for a 65 or 66 anyways, they have the cool Sprint top tube shifter.
