That makes sense. Another thing I was wondering was the rear drop design, did the early years have the rear exit drop outs with the adjusting bolts ? Or did Columbia use that design?
They did, earlier drops were pretty narrow, later they made a wider one, used up to around '50, on cheaper models. Fancy ones got forward drops, built in stand, & modern 1/2" pitch chain postwar. -Adam

I’ve been playing around with the red Colombian. Added a springer fork, different bars, a tank and a different seat.Still a work in progress, but I’m liking the look. I’ve got a bendix 2 speed manual hub on it and new tires.

My recent purchase today for a grand total of 1- 12pack of Diet Pepsi. A coworker found out I like building bikes and told me about a couple he had in the basement of the old house he bought. Said I could have them for a 6 pack of Diet Pepsi, but I felt generous and gave him a 12 packView attachment 179690 View attachment 179691 not sure what brand the boys is, but it’s early.
Could be a Monark, possibly a Roadmaster... Good luck....

The girls Murray, is that a built-in head light? Beautiful bike ... my very first bike was a girl's Huffy ... didn't care I just wanted to ride. Loved that bike.
