Hello I was hoping to get some information on this frame. Only thing I know it's an older Columbia frame. Thank you for any help. (I added a picture of a complete bike that I think matches the frame/crank.)

20 something by the chainring crank arms and badge, Czech the cereal number on mr. Columbia's website.
Cheers

Any place I could find a list of period correct parts to put it back together ? Thanks Chris
Lol, naw. Gotta look at all the original adds and pix you can find. Go from there, at least you have the correct crank n chainring and badge.
Are the axle adjuster bolts fine thread or corse thread? I've got a 27 and they are fine.

I haven't had a chance to look it over closely since my wife is hospitalized. Only been going home to shower.

Keep an eye on eBay and “parts for sale forum” hear on the CABE for any parts you need. If you don’t see correct parts then they will pop up eventually for sure. Also you can post the parts needed on our parts wanted forum. More people will eventually chime in and let you know exactly what you have. Best wishes to your wife, take your time with the bike it’s a cool one. Anthony

Thanks for the well wishes. I'm sitting by her in the ICU right now. I have been looking and researching different parts to compile a list.....plus it eases my mind. Once I know what I'm looking for I will start posting in the wanted ads. Thanks again. Chris

I believe this is a 1920. Troxel seat i believe in photo. Again I’m not a Columbia guy but this is a ‘20 in photo.

Pedals are not correct obviously. 28” steel wheels

You really need to get the serial number to get the year nailed down. It will be under the bottom bracket, beneath where the crank with the pedals goes through the frame.

93489 maybe? The first few are most important for dating the bike.

I can't tell from the picture, is there a model number stamed on the badge or is it blank? The factory stopped stamping the model number on the badge after 1923. If the model number is there then we will know the exact year.

It definitely has a model #....its hard to make out.

Now we’re getting somewhere! I new some Columbia guys would chime in eventually. That looks like possibly B6 to me?

Looks like B6 which makes it a 1924 Roadster. This helps answer when they stopped stamping the model on the badge.
Thank you for the information. I had no luck with a search. My first really old frame/bike. I dont think I got too beat up on the purchase not really knowing too much about these antique bikes. Really appreciate the help.
