Picked this gem up on its way to the landfill with another Huffy boat anchor. Glad I saved it

No idea what it is or significance. Just knew she needed saving

The Huffy should make an easy flip

It's a Nassau which appears to be pre Nel Lusso

Probably one of the longest running frames that Columbia did. 50s through 70s I think.
Love the paperboy handlebars too. That way you can mount a big basket up front. Yours is probably 1970s. I can't remember what year the BMA stickers started. Quality score!!!

She's all stripped down now. Gonna preserve that frame paint fade, clean up them wheels, and unsure about the rest

I sense a build coming on

I have a later model of the Columbia-built Newsboy, but mine is badged Rollfast. It had the same fenders, bars, seat, chainring, and the fat peaked fenders.

Monitoring the local collection yard is proving lucrative. Scored this Schwinn Candis days ago for free. Grip shifters were toast as was the rear derailleur. No grips, and the bars were caked in typical coastal rust. Pumped up the tires, gave it a singlespeedectomy, threw on some Cranbrook bars and it's already sold.

Lasted all of 1 day on Craigslist. A guy bought it for his wife and I see they already relisted it :21:
