    I'm starting to think this is not all that rare of a bike

    Not rare. Just expensive.

    Compared to some of the Colsons e.g. early Imperials/Commanders, a Huffman Super Streamline, or a '37/8 Roadmaster Supreme they are downright plentiful. What they are is extremely desirable which makes them expensive. V/r Shawn

    That's interesting. This is the second bike in this thread with both the '35 & '36 serial numbers. It looks like there were left over '35 frames and they just re-stamped them for '36. The only thing I can think of was this was an accountability measure. Thanks for posting. Now if we could just get the guy in Maine to post up his number! V/r Shawn

    Well that should start some convos! The '38 is a different bird altogether which is why I didn't include it in this thread. V/r Shawn

    Seems I heard once "birds of a feather should stick together", but it does make good sense to respect sticking to a thread

    Interesting to see a '38 serial number on a '37 model. From that it would seem they sold these into the '38 model year. Oh yea and that is one sweet bike! V/r Shawn

    When I said "sweet" I was referring to brwstrmgmt's '37 with a '38 serial. This thread is only for '35-37 Bluebirds. Please post for sale/Ebay/CL ads in the appropriate places. V/r Shawn
