Here is one of the most AWESOME 60+ year old bikes you could ever ask for!
Here is an original VINTAGE (Approx 1952-1953 era) The serial number is A128244) men's Columbia 5-Star SUPERB beach cruiser bicycle with 26" wheels. It is in the original and very appealing red and white 2-tone colored factory paint. If you like TOP OF THE LINE original bikes, this may be a great bike for you. With the insanely high price of gas (and the economy being bad) now is the time to ride a cool vintage bike!
*Back in the day everyone wanted a bike like this. Most people opted for the no frills, low cost models. Consequently, you rarely saw these back in the day when they were new. You almost NEVER see them in any condition these days! These are so cool and legendary, they actually tried to reproduce some models similiar to this years ago. NOTHING is as awesome as a REAL DEAL original! I hope you can appreciate this amazing bike!
*This bike has a cool mens cruiser style frame and forks with original paint and decals, frame mounted TANK with horn inside! (untested) original screen chainguard, (love the design) SPRINGER front forks, jeweled rear carrier rack with bulit in TAILLIGHT, (untested) cruiser style seat, wide cruiser handlebars, full fenders, cool rear fender reflector, fender mounted rocket shaped HEADLIGHT, (untested, lens partially missing) crash rail seat, optional FRONT WHEEL EXPANDER BRAKE, and more! Bikes DO NOT get more deluxe than this one! This is a TRUELY AMAZING RIDE!
*The tires are 26x2.125". They are vintage WIDE WHITEWALL tires and do hold air. The rear tire is a cool ALLSTATE tire. The front is a newer replacement. The bike has chrome rims front and rear with a New Departure hub.
*The bike is an original SINGLE SPEED with coaster brakes. (pedal slightly backwards to stop the bike) It also has the super hard to find front expander brake for added stopping power! WOW! Most of these bikes did not come with this rare option!
*DIMENSIONS The stand over height is approx 31 1/2". The distance from the floor to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 29 1/4". The distance from the center of the crank to the top of the seat post clamp is approx 18 1/4". The center of the handlebar stem to the center of the seat post is approx 22 1/2". The bike will accommodate most any rider comfortably. The seat height is easy to adjust.
*NOTED FLAWS It is not 100% flawless but is in ok condiiton considering its age. The paint looks ok for a 60+ year old bike! The chrome is shiney but is not perfect show quality. (chrome shows age and would need to be restored for show) I am guessing the pedals and hand grips are newer than the bike. The red pedals are super cool! Both wheels have a slight wobble when you spin them. If you click on any of the pics they get very large to show lots of detail. Please take a look at all pics for exact condition and email with any questions before you offer.
*This bike can be the STAR ATTRACTION of your collection! These almost NEVER come along in ANY CONDITION! I think it has survived quite well compared to most! Most were poorly repainted with house paint decades ago. To find one like this is a very rare find! I hope you enjoy and appreciate this one for decades! It is amazing and deserves a great home!
*This appears to be a fairly nice original unmolested bicycle unless otherwise noted. A great bike to ride on relaxing days through the park or to the beach. Also would be a nice item to display in a shop, restaurant, rec room, sports bar, etc. Stand out from the crowd and be the envy of people who see you riding by. People will enjoy seeing you on your vintage bike! A great classic bike at a great price
*Why not ride a bike? You will live longer, feel better, and save $$$ vs of the insanely high cost of gasoline. If you are looking for a fun bike to ride and enjoy this may be it! A nice bike to cruise the beach or your local park! Priced way less than a dime store bike that wont be around 5 years from now, much less 30+ years like this one! Please give this bike a good home and DON'T MISS THIS OPPORTUNITY! Classic bikes are very cool because not everyone on the block has one! People love to see and talk about and ride these classic bikes! They are more popular now than ever before!
*This may be a great Birthday or other special holiday gift for someone! It is never too soon to think ahead and get someone something they may really like!! This starts reasonably with ABSOLUTELY so offer early and don't miss out! These are getting to be hard to find in any condition and to my knowledge, have not been reproduced.
*Sold as is simply because it is used. I try my very best to describe as accurately as possible and disclose anything I am aware of about the bike. PLEASE NOTE that many of the bikes I list have listed have been in long term storage and have not been regularly ridden in a while.(not a bad thing) They may need standard tuning, greasing, may have old tires, surface rust etc. I try to be as honest as possible and never want to disappoint anyone. If you have any questions regarding any specific things concerning the bike, please feel feel to ASK via emali before you offer. Keep in mind you are offerding on a 30+ year old bike that is not a brand new bicycle so it may need minor tuning, cables or cable adjustment, if tires are original, they may or may not have sidewall cracks, etc. I try to be as honest as I can and disclose anything I know about the bike. I want you to be happy with your new vintage purchase but please understand the bike may need some tlc to be road ready.
*By offerding please understand that you are purchasing a used bicycle that may or may not need tlc. If I notice an issue, I always try to note it in the sale listing. I want you to be excited about your new bike and hope you really enjoy your new vintage ride for years to come. Be sure to check out all pics and email with any questions you may have before you offer regarding condition, mechanical items, etc.
*NOTE REGARDING SHIPPING YOUR BIKE Your bike will be partially disassembled and shipped to you in a factory bicycle box. We try our best to package the bicycles carefully to avoid any unnecessary damage caused in transit however, scratches etc are possible to happen in transit which we have no control over once shipped. We try to package well so the bike arrives to you in the same condition as it left us.
