I just picked this Colson project a 1941 Goodyear Double Eagle Clipper , It needs a rack and chainguard and a few other things but still mostly there.
Ok, so I have a prewar Ward Hawthorne with a fastback frame (please see my avatar)....what is the difference between my frame and the Colson Fastback?
There is no Colson fastback. Your bike is Snyder built. It would probably be best to start a thread about your bike seeking info on it
Bought a bike laden with prewar Schwinn parts. Now to build with the leftovers....seat post repaired... secret hi-speed testing of all drive gear components...also building up last Schwinn frame I own..just to keep my priorities straight. Any body got tanks? ?
Like I needed another Colson project
If you're gonna have another, that would be the ONE!
What a beauty!!!
Did this one about three years ago. First two pics are as I bought it, the last two are the finished product. I wanted something for cruise days that I wouldn't mind it getting a little scratched up.
Since it's cooled off for now and my back is better, this bike (Still in the box) will be on a workstand today.......
Here's how it sits today. A few revisions and a frame swap has brought us to JLB2.1
Looks like a great project bike. Please send pic's as you go along. Would like to see it when finished.
just got this, already started disassembling it. Lets see if lightning can strike twice and I can save this ones paint too.
Nice find Nick, Not to be a nay sayer, but, from this photo, bringing back much original paint may be a small miracle
I'm glad you got that.

hard work but, getting it back
Here's my project, a 1954 Firebird, though if I'm being honest it may be beyond my capabilities. And it may not be worth saving, considering the damage. It came with one wheel, the front, and the front axel is bent and stripped - it's six inches long and crucial to the working of the fork. The seat tube appears to have freezing damage and a very ugly weld holding the chain stays to the bottom bracket. I would part it out (not really), but there's not much to part without fixing it in the first place. I paid almost nothing for it, though, so any money spent ain't good money chasing bad, yet.
Nothing wrong with that. To me the crust is soooooo good on this one, if it were mine, I'd clean it, lube it, and post it in Fordmike's "Preserve the Crust" thread. The Clipper isn't my favorite style of Colson, but this bike is exciting (except for the pedals, of course).
My new dream bike as of today.
