    Picked this Colson up yesterday I spent many hours online trying to find out exactly what it's called. The badge says Flyer, online I've found grill nose, imperial and single flex. Which one is it?

    Thanks Mike

    I agree with all of the above, beautiful bike, great score. Along with the cushioner, you have THE Colson tank, IMHO, the grill tank trumps all the others. Good luck & have fun w/ it.

    I appreciate the likes and comments, thanks everyone! I have another bike I will be posting maybe later but before I hit the rod for a few days for sure.

    Best part about this pick was meeting another bike collector who was kind enough to invite me into his home, and show me his wonderful collection. A new friendship was formed, that was really the best part of the day.

    Mike
