    Colson Silver Ring....anyone ???

    Hi,

    I haz in my possesion a Colson Silver Ring from the '20's, and am discovering that this
    model is extremely rare and not much info on it.

    Skip tooth new departure, fenders, pigskin saddle, and crazy chainguard.

    The fenders are so strong you
    can sit an adult on them they will not bend.

    Just wondering if anyone anywhere has one, info on them...anything. I know
    a lot about other Colsons, just not this.


    Found this out for TRASH COLLECTION...banged on the owners door, he sez Oh yeah i have a crapload
    of vintage bikes, this one i just couldn't find much info on, so....gotta make room for my other bikes.

    I got lucky

    Ok pics this weekend, headbadge, the bike, all of it. I think the front fender is not original.
    chainguard is also suspect. maybe wheels too. tires are not 28 they are 27's from the 50's

    the rest is OK. it looks like a beater....

    but you will get pics or my name ain't 127.0.0.1

    Ummm, no. I had one many moons ago I know what that bike is all about

    this is a rare Colson Silver Ring. I have only seen 2 headbadges of a Silver Ring before
    getting my mitts on this

    hey don't lose sleep, it isn't that exciting fresh paint and whatnot. this thing has been
    ridden. it is a trash find.

    pics will come...

    We're just hazing you about the pics. Don't take us too seriously. But we do really like them.

    Hello.... I'm new to this site and am seeking info. I have a Colson Silver Ring as well and am beginning to restore from the dead. Unfortunately as stated above, there is little to no info on these. If anyone could pass some of this on to me it would be appreciated.

    Thanks
