    I have one but dont think that tank would go to it. Look in my Fotki albums in the link below for a pic of it.

    That is indeed a Columbia tank. The whole bike might have looked like this guy, which I formerly owned:

    Well, I sold it for $300 + shipping on ebay, but that buyer backed out. The second buyer (who now owns the bike) paid $250 + shipping.

    I can get you other detailed pictures of the bike if they would be helpful? It was a really, really nice O.G. bike. Like NOS.

    I think that is a girls tank :wink: It looks like unchained's tank but it is to small. There will be a gap between the two bars. It might fit...I don't know. I tried a tank off a girls bike on my boys frame and that was the problem I had :wink: Cool find by the way :mrgreen:
