I will have to do some more digging and see what I can come up with, it seems that it may well be a late 50's or 60's model Columbia....Shrug... I just know I've never seen one like it that I can remember.
All the welds on this bike look strong but none of them are just super clean perfect welds like we see on the good bikes today.
I really like the chain guard, it and the double top bars are what made me get this bike.
If I can get the frame straightened out real good I think this will end up being a real nice shade of green, I'm not sure what is under the paint on that chain guard, it would be nice if it is chrome....... but I doubt it, It sure would be awesome if it were chromed though, it reminds me of all the rocket shaped stuff that was popular in the early 60's late 50's era.
