    I'm not even sure if this is a middleweight or Ballooner but anybody have an idea what this is (model, approx year)? The seat looks like early 60s.

    Even whether it's a Columbia? The sprocket, rear dropouts and pinched front fender look like a Columbia but I may be wrong. Thanks for any help.

    The full length "truss rod(?)" looks unique but original, I've never seen anything like this.
    No other pics available. Thanks for any help.

    Looks like a model Columbia had in the 60's called the "Apache" . There may have been a lower level model with that frame as well. I don't have access to my catalog scans right now a but will check them later and post if I can find it.
