I found this frame earlier this week, mocked this up this afternoon from parts I hand on hand, I'm not liking the bars, i want to go with an mx bar maybe with a slingshot stem i have.
I believe the frame to be a prewar Colson, can anyone comfirm?

Yeah I agree, bar looks too flat, you need some rise. I'd say try the MX bars with the stem you have now, and if you find the handling too twitchy, then add the Slingshot. Wide bars don't like long stems

I really like your bike!
Frame and rim color choice, and that fork!!
Thanks, I'm proud to own it! Wish I could say I built it.

@Skipton build this one as a Chicago Taildraggers raffle bike a year or so ago. Guy who won it put it on CL the next day as it was too small for him.

So I snapped it up, to keep it in the family, as it were.
