    It's definitely a Columbia , they have the top tube that goes thru the seat tube ,. The paint may be obscuring the #'s , but when you find them , you can look them up here http://vintagecolumbiabikes.com/id79.html And if you part this out , I'm interested in the springer :D

    Looks like mid-late 50s Fleetwing. I have the same frame with an alternate paint scheme that suggests a Fire-Arrow.

    You've got first dibs on the springer dogdart if I decide to part it out, but I think this one's gonna get used on another build. :eek:
    It may even stay in one piece. I kind of like the way this one looks, just need to find some reasonably priced tanks for it and the other two columbias I got.
