Hi Everyone,

I’m looking to purchase original accessories for my Westfield Columbia G519. Please let me know if you know someone willing to provide these. The following is what I require:
Persons Tool Bag +Toll Set
Bridgeport No.12 pump with brackets
Bevin Bell
Manuals: TM (Technical Manual) and SNL ((Standard Nomenclature List) for G 519

Thanks

Hi @Trail Rider and welcome.

Half the fun of collecting is looking for the parts. Some of the item on your list are more difficult to obtain than others.

Persons bag - may take a lot of searching, and may be $300+ when you find it.
Tools - Original NOS wrench here: https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/nos-morrow-hub-wrench.167340/
Pump - There are several adverts to sell Bridgeport 12 pumps on tis forum, but all are civilian, A military one is a lot harder to find. Not all military pumps were Bridgeport. See topic here, : https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/g519-hand-pump-and-clamp.168938/
Clamps - Again, a hard search for originals. But very good reproductions (as well as repro wrenches) available here: http://www.bergerwerke.com/products.html
Bevin Bell - This was a common civilian item, so often found on ebay, sometimes on CABE and easy to paint green. An original is a lucky find.
Manuals - Originals are rare and expensive, so few that it is impossible to give a guide price. Luckily, reprints are cheap and easy to find. Here, for example, but there are others out there: https://www.portrayalpress.com/Illustrated-Parts-and-Service-for-G519-WW2-Bicycle-p/620-0519.htm

I hope that helps.

Best Regards,

Adrian

Original manuals are just about impossible to find. In over 30 years of researching and restoring G519s I had one! opportunity to buy originals about a year or so ago when someone sold his stock of spare parts and manuals,,, Needless to say I didnt hesitate for second…

Thanks Johan and Adrian. Both you guys are a wealth of knowledge. I forgot to ask about an original kick stand. Any advice and information on trying to find an buy one? Also, any way to get copies of the manual that Johan shared?

Hello Trail Rider,

Adrian included the link for the service manual in the last paragraph of his last post. I ordered one about 6 months ago. Well worth the price of admission @ $8.00. Here it is again.

And again, many thanks to Adrian Johan, and Serge.

Thx all!

Meanwhile here's a photo of an NOS kick stand that was on Ebay a couple of years ago. Gives you an idea...
Also a photo of one of my toolbags with tools and accessories. The pump in the photo is a replica made by the late Ken Boice of Historical Reproductions back around 2004. I do have an original one but no photos at the moment... Photo attached was taken for the article on G519 I wrote for the french Militaria Magazine in September 2015.

Hi @Trail Rider

Reprints of the other two documents shown by Johan can be got from here: https://robvanmeel.nl/product/colum...ord-7-8-snl-g519-1943-1949-poor-quality-55-p/

He describes them as 'poor quality', but the copies I got were perfectly good.

For the stands, be careful, there is another type which looks similar, but is not a stand from a G519. See discussion here for this type: https://thecabe.com/forum/threads/od-green-prewar-wartime-g519-kickstand.173257/#post-1175981

Some Huffmans apparently have a different stand, but I've never yet seen a good picture of it.

Best Regards,

Adrian
