Today was a great day. Finished a 2 year long project. This rare beauty has original paint. It had the original rubber mud guard that I removed and will be making a reproduction for it to save the original.

The last thing I need is the correct main bearing cones and locking nuts. The main bearings have a 1 3/4 inch inside diameter and use a 9 ball main bearing vice the more common 10 ball type.

I built out a set of cones and parts but they are too wide.

Blunt 35 rims for ridability and am building out the original rims for show.

I added the drop stand and reflector from a 1922 Columbia Military Model bicycle. This way it parks and stores easier. Bell and gangway horn because I can!

I found that this brand of OD paint matches the origin as l paint pretty close.

I'll be patterning out the rubber mud guard and let everyone share the pattern. If I can make a good reproduction I'll share my technique.

3 years of research and restoration came to fruition on Sunday 11/11/2018. My son and I got to take my 1918 Columbia Military Model Bicycle and the 1915 Pope built Lenox Bicycle up 5th Ave in the NYC Veterans day parade commemorating the 100th Anniversary of the end of WWI.

A memory to last a lifetime.
