I just received this bicycle and ofcorse it’s missing the badge. I seem to remember Harley Davidson bike had 3 plate fork crowns any chance I got a Harley? I don’t see a serial number but I haven’t scrubbed it down yet either.
many info is appreciated thanks
@Archie Sturmer so it’s a colson that had its crank replaced with a Westfield because they are the same size . Nice I’ll check for standings on the lugs when I get home . I wonder if it’s a youth bike it is smaller but I just assumed It is because the chainless Bikes I just picked up are so large but it’s possible it’s a youth bike which is interesting I have a smaller 20 inch Colson youth bike also I will pull it out and comparison features thanks so much
THX for the good info. I'm building a Motocyke for my Collection. Tribute bike. I believe that the Westfield would be a better candidate frame for an “Indian” tribute bike; and although the Indian head badge (repro) may be easier to find than HD, the HD sprocket (repro) may be easier to...
You can have some fun with all this now! I would separate the bicycles from the parts, get them out in the sunshine and post some pictures. Individual parts are good sellers and you should start there to try to thin it all out. Stacked up and not used parts won't help anyone. Post pics of...
So it looks a lot like the frame in the second link I also went to look for numbers cast into the lugs like my other colson 20” but it didn’t have any. I measured the wheels and they only measure 23” across not 25” so it’s a youth bike what size tires am I looking for?26” single tube? Also the bike was originally baby blue with a white steering tube and pointed darts
The fork crown with laminated plates does not match any Colson bicycles that I have seen, but does resemble some replacement forks that may have been available.
We saw a fairly bent fork in one of the Colson pictures in posts linked above, which also show two different size bottom bracket crank hangers, with different style casting marks, for two different sizes of lug frames shown.
