    Some of you will remember this Marine Issue WWII Columbia that I restored last year. It was missing the original wheels so I had done it up temporarily with a set made with Army surplus rims and a homemade front hub.

    Well, thanks to Tom Warabak the bike now has a set of correct wheels. Not only that but they came with NOS War Tires. This bike is complete.
