MISC:   columbia tourist posted by: tim on 11/29/2003 at 11:29:09 PM
i've got a columbia tourist V and i'm trying to price it. anybody got ideas?


   RE:MISC:   columbia tourist posted by paul on 12/1/2003 at 1:47:55 PM
if the following spec's are there: inch pitch chain, single speed coaster brake, frame shaped like a British roadster, tires 26 X 1 and 1/4, narrow fenders crimped at the end with a "peak", my sense is that it's a "victory bicycle" built in Westfield, MA ca 1940 to 1945. Check the underside of the bottom bracket for serial numbers: A=1936 plus 5 digit, hence 1942 would be Gxxxxx.......hope this helps! paul
