1971 Columbia SuperSport

(Click for full photo)

1971 Columbia SuperSport This is a 1971 Columbia SuperSport, more commonly refered to as an "SS5". Columbia made these bikes in a 5, 3, and 1 (or coaster brake) version. Their frame design, although innovative for the time, lacked strength in the sprocket mounting configuration, thus sending most of these bikes to an early grave. Either because of the small numbers left in existence, or the radical "chopper" design, these bikes are highly sought out by musclebike collectors today. They were also produced by the Modern Tool and Die Co. (MTD), and carried their headbadge as well. Both bikes were exactly the same other than the headbadge and chainguard artwork. The one shown here is fully restored. It can be used as a reference for such, as every detail is correct.(Lever covers were added at owners preference and were not factory original) Bike owned by/photo credit, Bob Timms 1-27-03

1949 Shelby Supreme

(Click for full photo)

1949 Shelby Supreme a rare and classic SHELBY CYCLE CO. SUPREME BICYCLE Ladies Bike in near mint condition, most likely museum quality. The owner~s mother won this fabulous two-toned red and beige bike in a raffle at Hamlin Park in East Aurora, NY circa 1949 or 1950, and barely - if ever - used it, it has been stored most of its life. The chrome on the tires is brilliant, the seat looks brand new, and the "Shelby" painted decals are intact. The bicycle~s serial number is 49.71781. It measures 33" to the seat and is 6 feet in length. Completely original including paint and all parts, this beautiful bicycle shows very little wear with only a handful of scratches or scuffs and some light rust in a few spots as can be seen in the photos, most of which are a result of moving it around in storage and not from use. The horn works fine as does the light, though new batteries/bulb are needed. Additional details regarding the parts include: * Seat: Stamped "Troxel, Elyria, OH" * Tires: Marked "US Royal Chain, United States Rubber Co." * Light: Marked "Delta, Made in USA" * Frame Plate: "Bendix" (near back tire) * Kickstand: Marked "DATA PL" * Handlebar Grips: Marked "FlexGrip, Pat. Pending" * Name Plates: One says "The Shelby, American~s Quality Bicycle, The Shelby Cycle Co., Shelby, OH" and the other, "Shelby Supreme".
