Vintage 1941 Wings Marathon Ladies Ballooner Bicycle, made by Colson Corporation Elyria, Ohio. The Wings Marathon Line, and or Badged Bikes were sold in the Goodyear Tire Stores. The Wings Marathon was Goodyear’s third tier bike line, sold as a Economic bike, that was fully equipped and less expensive as the top two lines. Economic usually meant the lack of bright chrome and more painted parts. This Beautiful Blue and Cream Ladies Wings Colson built ballooner bike is an unique gem ready to Ride in Style.
This Wings ladies bike features a Unique Snap Tank, Gothic Fenders, Chainguard, Rack and Torpedo Light. This Wings bike has all Painted parts in a Lovely Cream and Blue including the Prewar Chrome Drop center Wheels with New Departure Hubs. The Drive is the Rare Skiptooth Chain. This is a full size Ladies’s adult ballooner bike with new goodyear pattern 26″ x 2.125″ black wall tires. The Original Delta Torpedo has been Retro fitted with high efficient Led Lights giving you improved light and efficiency. This is Quite Rare bike that comes at a price, I would consider selling lower minus the rack. The Bike was patina Restored as Found (Original). She’s ready to Ride or Show.
