    Have a chance to trade some wagons and an old cooler for these two Bikes. The Lacks trade is pretty much a done deal.

    The Columbia is undecided as I would have to throw in my nicest old wagon and some cash but it is a skip tooth.

    Question? What do you think the value of these two bikes is? Like I said, I am on the fence on the Columbia.

    Green GTO wagon and Coca Cola cooler. Trading these two items for the Lacks Cruiser.

    Murray Rocket wagon I have to throw in plus some cash to make this deal happen.

    Really torn about this because the value of the wagon is 350 or so. I have seen more beat up ones than this sell on eBay for this or more. I believe it is a late 1940s model. That Columbia sure looks tempting though!

    I've picked up those wagons for 100 - 150 but combined with the other and the cooler I wouldn't throw in any cash . But I'm cheap and a master of haggling ., lol :bigboss:

    No guard on the Columbia. Even trade, no extra cash.

    Is that even a columbia? I'm not that prewar saavy but that tank does not appear to fit correctly. Looks like a 50s era tank. Also, I've never seen a columbia fork with those truss rods standoffs.

    You beat me to it, looks like maybe a Shelby motorbike with a much later Columbia tank.

    If you pick it up and that tank is red, I have a home for it. I may have an era appropriate guard. Let me know :)

    I agree...doesn't look like a Columbia or Westfield to me, either. Imposter tank!

    Still a cool bike but guy is asking way too much for this Frankenbike. I have since moved on.
