Hi.
I am looking at a unbadged high wheel. The seller claims it to be Columbia. Where can I find the serial number? Did they all have them? I don’t want to overpay.

Serial numbers on Columbia highwheel bicycles are usually located underneath the fork head and also on top of the backbone neck. The wheel diameter size is also located on the neck where it starts to curve upwards. A value cannot be determined until some photos are posted for condition and in case other parts are missing.

maybe he doesn't wish to post photo's so someone can locate the bike and swoop in and buy it ahead of him?
