    This 50's Columbia is getting a makeover. Will get the Evans-Colson "Sonic Scout" springer, Going to get it's original light, but no front fender, and a short "bobbed" fender for the rear. giving it that late 50's roadster look, that I grew up with as a kid. Leaning towards the paint being black and cream, standard Columbia paint scheme. This is a wild springer, there has to be ten 24 inch versions for every 26", or at least it seems that way to me. Seldom see these chrome ones in decent shape. This makes 4 bikes I am working on getting the paint work done, so I can assemble when it's cold and snowing....Loads of fun , when it's cold out side.:) IMG_2174 (4).JPG IMG_2175 (4).JPG IMG_2176 (4).JPG the 1950's Columbia donated it's original springer to this older model, shown below, earlier this summer. This old timer, rides great. IMG_2157 (2).JPG IMG_2155 (1).JPG IMG_2156 (2).JPG
