Repaint? Every Columbia newsboy original I can find has a unique chain guard (not the one on your bike) and the forks have darts on them and lastly there is a decal on the seat post. That's a nice looking bike you have, love the color combo.

It's in the wrong section, this is Parts. Don't worry, that will get fixed soon. It is a pretty swell bike!

I'll have to look when I get home tonight but some things look wrong. The fork truss rods are not Columbia for example. I think it may be a partial repaint as well. I don't remember the 3 star chain guard used as late as 1964 either. Will post what I find tonight.

Appreciate your input. I thought the newsboys had a unique chain guard. Sprocket looks different.

I noticed that your head badge is "Westfeild Mfg Co." The last year for that would have been 1960 as they became "Columbia Mfg Co'" in 1961. Your bike has been parted together with a varitey of parts. The Newsboy never came with a bolt on luggage rack though the one on this bike is one used on 60's Columbia "Special" models. The truss rods and front sprocket are not Columbia. The frame is possibly a 1950 Newsboy as that would have had a serial number that starts with "N" and is the same style. That chain guard would have been used on 1950's Newboys as well. It also has one of the reproduction headlights from the 1986 RX-5 reproduction. Basicaly a frankenbike.
