Details

This auction is for a Vintage 1963 Columbia Newsboy Special balloon tire bicycle.  Please note the rear rack is actually part of the whole frame.  This '63 Newsboy Special is all original:  heavy duty wheels, built in rack, oiler in the extra long chainguard, full coverage fenders.  This bike is in great shape, and wouldn't take much to make it into a great rider.  Air in the tires, a little bit of wheel truing, some lubing, and its good to go.
The bike is all original except for the seat.  It is missing the fork truss.

Bike is in excellent shape, apart from just a few scratches and a couple of dents on the fenders, frame and chainguard.  The paint has most of the gloss still left, but the top of the rack and fenders are starting to fade from sun exposure. 

Built in 1963 in Westfield, Mass, USA, by Columbia. 
Columbia is the last name of the company that started as Pope manufacturing in 1877.  Westfield Manufacturing became independent of Torrrington in 1961, taking the name Columbia Manufacturing.


**Please note the silver overspray on the frame, chainguard, and tires.  Previous owner sprayed silver paint on the rims without taking the wheels out of the bike.
