    First picture is as bought...3 hours later mostly torn down. Now to find out what I have. No head badge. Photo of serial number and of frame head where head badge was, blue paint underneath. Badge mounting holes are offset like Columbia. Badge would be about 3" tall.

    Any help on make and year greatly appreciated.

    I now have 2 Columbia's, both 28", one motorbike, and this camelback. Both have serial numbers that start with the letter D. Checking MrColumbia's web site I think they are both 1926. The motorbike.... IMG_0004.JPG

    Serial no,D 37040...

    Camelback serial is D 15721

    Any input appreciated.

    I think that's a Pope chain ring.

    It is indeed. Cleaned it off and it is stamped Pope. Pretty sure the fork is a replacement. There's no provision for a front fender mount (the screw under the fork) and it doesn't look like the fork on my other '26 Columbia. Gonna be hard to get just a fork and probably the 2 brackets.

    Nice Columbia. I restored one last summer with the help of several Cabers. Have fun.
