Not much of a pic...any leads as to year/model? Looks like a repaint but hard to say from the pic.

Thanks!

Unless someone can tell from one picture.
I would begin with the head badge for starters.
Are there any words on the chain guard or rear brakes?

Columbia "Newsboy" seems to be the consensus.

This Columbia Newsboy with the front lobster trap....looks very much like the pic you posted.
Differences are the saddle and pedals.
Somebody with knowledge about Columbia
bikes might be able to tell you about the
location of the stamped number on the frame.

Thanks to all of the above for the speedy help on a bad CL picture. I have now looked at a ton of Newsboy Specials and no doubt that is what it is. Made for a lot of years but I would guess this one is not really old. $50 dollars is a good price but hard to justify a 3 hour road trip (one way).
