    Another Colson

    As stated above several times, this is not a Colson, but a Snyder built bike. Additionally, Colsons use 3/4" seatposts, not 13/16".

    SOLD! 1952 Monark Tanker Project

    Great start to a resto or custom build. Includes frame, fork, fenders, tank and chainguard. I have no other parts for this bike, but parts should not be difficult to find should you go all original or with modern pieces.

    What is this?

    Not an expert here either. There are several similar double bar frames around that same period. Colson even had a similar fork with a forward tab to attach the front fender to. This frame is definitely not Colson tho. Here is a Colson

    Prewar find but what is it?

    Here's one I picked up recently. Pretty crusty with a lil red showing through in spots. I'm tempted to clean it up as you have, but I think I'll enjoy it as is for the time being...

    Prewar find but what is it?

    Consider yourself quite lucky as the paint on these Colsons is notorious for not holding up very well. Too bad you weren't able to find the rest of the missing parts. Looks like a great start to a nice project!

    Prewar find but what is it?

    This frame was introduced in 36 and made until around 39 or so. I'd have to check out my Colson book. The bike first posted in this thread is a 36 or 37, as the tall LWB frame was made for only 2 years.

    Picked up this '36 Fully Equipped Motorbike at a local swap. Had enough parts to replace the incorrect fenders,bars,guard & fork that it came with.
