A friend of mine found this beaut sitting on the curb almost a year ago. We figured out that it's a Columbia, but any more than that we don't know. The geometry was the most attractive aspect of the bike for me, since most of the parts are cheap. Chainstays are 17" and I don't know if I measured the wheelbase correctly but I got around 48", it also has pretty generous looking fork trail so I deduced this might make a great touring bike if it got fixed up a bit. Problem is, it's HEAVY. This bike is obviously from a different era since the frame alone weighs 15lbs. Does anybody know anything about this bike or what kind of parts to give it to build a budget touring machine?
