Looking to find out what year is my Columbia bike. I bought it from a fellow caber said is all original. wheels I added my self they where missing. Pedals are Pearson stamp. The drop stand has a pat date 1915 and they look to be brass. I would like to know the year and what is not correct on the bike. Thank you much and enjoy pictures

The fenders on this bike are deeper than MrColumbias 1920 bike. I thought deeper fenders came later?
(I just picked up a 1921 arch Columbia and I am also trying to i.d. the correct year and parts!)

The fenders are correct. I will have to check the catalog when I get home tonight on the wheels. I have a 1920, nearly identical but wheels often had multiple options. Mine has wood rims.

Thank you I would really appreciate that.

So now I’m on the hunt for shallower fenders.

Dont get too hung up on that. It is very possible the fenders you have came from the factory. Catalog descriptions are the venue of marketing, not manufacturing. New parts for the next model year could be used early if the old ones were used up and the reverse is also true and old parts could be used up on the new model year. I've seen it way too often to be a random thing. I've worked in the factory and seen it first hand.
