Thanks ,so I take it that it would not have came with a tank, I read something I believe on this thread about lost ( as in haven't came across any) B & C serial numbers and D series starting after the war,I havea couple of more pics in another thread, where I started scrubbing it clean.
ps I am pretty upset about the streamers being gone
Something's off, I'm reading that the war department limited the number of bicycle MFG's to two Columbia & Huffman in Sept of1942 although there's no holes in the headtube for a badge, how many 1943 bikes could CWC have made, unless they catalouged unsold bikes built before Sept 42 ,as 43's?
Any estimate on year and model of this bike? I have searched and searched and seem's to me something with the bike is a little off as in items seem to be mixed on the bike. I am also new to the restoration game so probably my issue. Appreciate the help!
