My Wife's 77 Columbia Sport 3. It no longer is a 3 speed. Was quite rusty, so I used some newer wheels.She fell in love with the Schwinn headbadge I had, so to keep Momma happy, its hers.she didnt want the chainguard lettered, so its done HER way.....
I don't own this one anymore, I sold it last year because it was taking up space, I never really rode it much, and I needed some money. I hope it went to a good home - some lady picked it up for her husband, so I hope he appreciates classy vintage bikes as much as I do.
This was the first model Columbia made with a dérailleur.
This was absolutely my favorite bike for years! A Western Flyer Sherwood Flyer made by Columbia (obviously). STOLEN in Savannah, Georgia.
Serial number N275XXX and a 1963 sturmey hub. Maybe it's still out there somwhere and not at the bottom of a river. :roll: Broke my heart, though only paid $5 for it.
One of my room mate's bikes also stolen, but in Austin Texas:
1973, but I don't know what the serial number is, so even if it every showed up again I don't there's much to prove ownership except for the photos I took.
I also had a Columbia moped at one time, I can dig out pics if anybody wants to see it. :mrgreen:
