I just scored this frame last week and I had no idea what kind of bike I had, until I looked at the bicycle bible, "Evolution of the bicycle vol.2" ! I flipped through the "bible" page by page until I spotted a frame that caught my eye, It was very similar to my frame so I googled "1940 Colson frame" and this thread popped up!

viewtopic.php?f=6&t=19926&st=0&sk=t&sd=a

And just like that....There was my frame!
I had been wanting to build a "correct" vintage KLUNKER and after months of collecting vintage parts for this build...I found this frame! After I had seen the photo's & read some of the comments I was having second thoughts about using this frame for this kind of build!

I have been searching for the right frame for this build and I thought this would be perfect, but what I really want is a 1940/41 SCHWINN EXCELSIOR frame! Does anyone want to trade?
here are a few photo's of my 1940/41 Colson frame:


I love the lines on this frame !


To KLUNK or not to KLUNK...That is the question ?


I love this teardrop rear triangle...Very nice !


I AM VERY SERIOUS ABOUT TRADING ! PLEASE LET ME KNOW IF YOU ARE INTERESTED. GERRY D. FBK.

this isn't the frame you mentioned, didn't know if you would interest a trade on it. it is a 26inch monark with matchin front fender and fork. the wheels are nothing to get excited about, cheap chinese junk so i wouldn't think you would be interested in them. the seat is no longer on the bike either. just let me know, no biggy either way! :D
