FOR SALE:   bicycle built for two posted by: Leadee wilson on 7/6/2004 at 3:40:11 PM
I have my mothers bicycle built for two and I am trying to restore it. It has Columbia MFG.CO.INC. It looks like Colums and then westfield----USA on a sticker in the front. I am in need of back bearing and matching seats. Maybe put on good chains...Its been sitting awhile. Can you steer me in the right direction where I can find these items.... Thank you...../

A bike shop might be a good place to start. If they don't have a 'matching' seat just buy a pair of new ones and they'll match :-)
