Hi All,

Recently there were some New Old Stock (NOS) G519 Columbia forks sold on Ebay. This got me to thinking about the other NOS G519 parts which turn up from time to time. The handlebars are still fairly common. Wheel rims where available when I first started collecting, but seem to have vanished now. I have seen pictures of NOS chains, lights, rear fenders and saddle bases too.

I'd like to use this thread as a Library to record NOS parts, and especially if they have the original wrapping and lables.

@Craig Johnson , you did a similar thing on G503, please could I transfer those images to here, with credit to you? Thanks.

Just to start, I'll repeat the Columbia forks photos.

Handlebars

Large quantities of these were available from EBAY and other sources from at least 2016. Does anyone know the original source?

Item No. 55 List #122
Contract W-478-ORD-3418
The Westfield Mfg. Co..
Westfield, Mass.

Although I can find no note of this contract, (Contracts under $50,000 were not recorded) I know Westfield had the following contracts:

So, Contract W-478-ORD-3418 was probably issued June 1943, or slightly before.

Best Regards,
