This is a Vintage 1958 Columbia Fire Arrow middleweight bicycle. This bicycle is all original except for the grips and maybe the seat. With a little work, this bike will be a show bike. Well, a little work and a lot of steel wool. The chrome is in good shape but is showing some defects - small spots on the fenders, light, and rack. Not rust, but not perfect either. We didn't touch this bike mechanically and we haven't cleaned it. It was put on display 25 years ago and just taken down for pictures/listing. All decals on the bike are in great shape, except that its missing the Columbia on the tank.
No dents - even on the fenders! There are a few scratches, but none are very large.
Pedals are the original red colored block style. Still nice.
Original Miller head lamp (can be shined up). Has the lens.
Original tank is in great shape and even has the original bell inside. Large white columbia button is still funcionable. Missing the Columbia decals.
Chainguard is in great shape with the decal in even better shape.
Original rear rack.
Headbadge is in great shape.
