    This popped up on CL yesterday for $50. He took $37 for it! I only even offered that because I thought I saw a Bendix shift lever in the photo. I don't have much experience or knowledge about these. The one other one I tool off a Schwinn has a Orange/red BENDIX on the coaster brake arm but this one appears to be Blue and red Orange. Is it a different model? Different between schwinn and columbia? I was gonna just snip out the hub because I also thought this was a 24". It's not, Its a full size 26" and has the best patina on any rust bucked I have ever bought! To pull it or not too.

    That serial number makes it a 1954 model. As is all the way! Maybe the original paint will show after a good cleaning.
