Cool Ol Colson Flyer Wood wheel Motorbike from the End of the wood wheel era and the beginning of the Colson Corporation. Colson roots tie back to the late 1890s and Colson Mfg. Co. actually became name in 1917 and carried through till 1933. This Colson Flyer is most Likely from 1933 and is one of the First offerings from the Colson Corp. 1933 -1953. Colson Corp. made Top Quality Bicycles that Rival Close Schwinn’s Superior Quality. This Colson Motorbike has Great Patina and would adorn any Collection.
This 1933 Colson Flyer Motorbike is Lux Low Patina restored with original parts as found. The Bike was totally rebuilt in intentions of being a daily rider, yet a last minute crack in the fork tube threads and a closing winter changed the outcome of this bicycle. The Bike has Great Patina, Check the Frame, Truss Fork, and Fenders. The Wheels are 28″ x 1 1/2″ with Nice Wood Rims laced to a New Departure model W front hub and a rear New Departure Model D Coaster Brake Hub. The Wheels have Blackwall Tubular tires that hold some shape but not air. The Wood Wheels look great on the bike unfortunately they are not road worthy. The Seat is an old Vintage Troxel Saddle and the drive is Skiptooth chain. She’s a cool Old Ride that would look good in your collection or good for Conversation, Decor, or Ride with Work!
