Missed this thread and decided on a Klunker late in the game...but here is mine a 59 Columbia Middleweight. Most new parts from RRB members including a 7 speed rear coaster, 3 piece crank, stainless chain, 3 inch rise bars and a front drum brake. I am very happy with this bike and it rides like a dream...and slides good too !!!
My build will be finished this weekend, one way or another. Hoping I can find a suitable tire for the 3 speed wheel but if not it will be a single speed, which is disappointing. Will have to wait until next week for an action photo unless I just do it on the boardwalk at the beach, which is not as dramatic. :roll:
