    Offered here is a 1898 Columbia Model 49 Factory Racer
    ______________________________________________

    It has the original racing saddle as per the catalogue ( for display only )

    It has the original factory "Porcupine" hubs and also spokes are original factory tied & soldered.

    Wood dropped bars and set up same as the great champion cyclist Conn Baker - pic attached

    No seat post ( easy to find I've just never put one on ) and no pedals. I do have the factory racing pedals which I will sell along with the bike should someone want to buy them separately. They are NOS and the only pair known to exist ( RARE ). You can see them where the bike is sitting alongside an original 1895 Cycles Clement poster by PAL.

    Price $1 (obo) shipped in the U.S. - Paypal only please.

    Thank you
