July 12th update: This bike being auctioned on ebay, NO RESERVE: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi ... 0702391684 I know, I'm starting the diary for this build in the middle, but I didn't think I was going to do much with this thing. At first I was just gonna rattle-can it, but it's turning out so nice that I'll share. This is an early 60's (I believe) Columbia Firebolt. It was originally red with white, and had a tank with twin headlights and a bell. I was really intriqued by the unique back rack, so I bought this bike as a package deal with a Hawthorne, a Hiawatha, and a Stingray. Since the paint was just ok, I thought I might rattle-can it. But then I remembered that my neighbor had painted his girlfriends car in a really nice blue. He said he had enough left over to do it up, so he took it. At the time, I thought I was going to accent it with baby blue (tank and chainguard) and white, but now I've decided to just use white. Right now I'm leaning towards fenderless with whitewalls, white tank and guard, and I'll have old school "Columbia" logos made up for the tank. Hope you like so far.
