I've been watching for an answer to this question. I was figuring it's probably not too different from the Schwinn design- have you compared the two? There are good instructions for the Schwinn at
Seriously, I'd like to hear about the Columbia design. Anyone?

Yes I did see that on the bunch web site. There is a variation however. Still searching

Any luck with this disassembly? I may be wrong, but I thought there was a roll pin or a cotter key on the end of the stand arm that when removed allowed the whole thing to slide out of the housing.

finally getting into road biking after years of temptation. a month ago I picked up what i believe to be a mid 80's marinoni bike. I love it it is fast with a nice smooth ride. then yesterday was at the dump and found a Raleigh Criterium. It looks to be late 70's to mid 80's. components are all shimano 600. don't know anything about this bike, but intrigued by it. from what I read in other discussion areas, nobody really knows how to decipher what exactly this bike is. Mine is green with black decals. The handle bar stem has SR on it. The front fork has chrome on the bottom third. oh and the tubing is 20-30. the rear rim says Weinnmann-Belgium, which is concave, from another site I've found that this is not the best rim as it can only accomadate low pressure - non-hooked. The bike has fenders, don't know if they are original. that is about it.
any info on this ride would be much appreciated.

The headbadge says Imperial and Westfield Mfg. I was told it is a Columbia Brand but not sure. Im looking for info on this to maybe find some original parts for it. Thanks!

Columbia, yes.
Dave's vintage cycles may be able to help.
It looks to me like your fork is damaged or misassembled or both.
