Is this a weird situation, or did this repro corrode in a different way that the original bikes did? Either this was not primed before painting, used poor quality metal or was kept in a shed full of lye.
I like a bit of patina (I dated her sister) but this is too much.
I m searching for a 1947 or would consider A 1946 if it looks like the one pictured.. I prefer a dark blue with the white accents but will consider any Shapleigh Hardware or Columbia or other badged bike made by Columbia in 1947 that looks like this bike.. Thanks, Billy email@example.com

Westfield Columbia dog leg crankset from a men’s 1946 bike. Has the complete bottom bracket including the bearing cups. Torrington bearings. Chrome on crankset is pretty much gone, chainring is decent but has some pitting. Would be great for a rider or rechrome and show!

I bought this a few years ago because I needed the seat. Things have changed since, but I would still like to know when it was built. I am guessing 1905, give or take. Bike is very light. It still needs a good cleaning. I meant to look at the serial number but got distracted. Saddle says...
I bought a '64 Columbia Torpedo from the original owner some years back, guy got it brand new from his folks when he was a kid and swears up and down he didn't change anything, down to tires..frankly he didn't come across as the type to assemble something custom for it.
Well, I discovered the...

Hello, I am trying to find a Westfield built bike from 1914 - 1924 tall frame roadster, one top bar, will pay fair price.
Paying more if equipped with leaf spring fork and any other goodies.
I hope this brings a good year to all who read it.
I just acquired this 1970 Goodyear Car & Home catalog. Here is their Bicycle and trike offerings by Columbia and their parent company MTD. It seems strange how they offer some of them as "Chain Bikes" as if there were another option in 1970. Also "Polo Bikes" is another one I have not come...

Poll closes in 10 days.
I made a ratrod like headlight from an old tractor light, now the question is how can I attach it to the bike? I would like to get it to sit a little above the fender, is there an existing bracket that attaches to the neck that would except the bolt on the bottom of the light?
Had fun ratting this out. Started with the red frame: added some beefier 26 x2.125 tires and rims re-laced to a rebuilt Komet hub and chrome fenders. Crank, pedals and smaller chainring off girls parts bike. Mini-apes are vintage cushioner bars with very cushy Thompson grips I’ve had laying...
