Goodyear Bicycle

What do you make of this? The frame looks rusty, painted multiple times. The crank and wheels look comparatively unrusty. I like the light, the seat must be new. The style is definitely cool.

What was the price? The 'patina' is acceptable for a skiptooth that old. Have you seen it in person? Is that light spot at the back paint or a weld? It looks like a rider to my eyes, the seat is very nice, Troxel, Persons?


If the price is right for you, I would get it. Looks like a great project without knowing any particulars.

A skip-tooth ring on a cruiser like this would place it at 1930's. Good shape for an old bike, considering. While it is cheaply built from what I can see, it has value to pre-war cruiser collectibles, and with the Goodyear name attached, to automotive collectors as well. Probably worth at least $200. Maybe a good bit more.

Since it looks to be basically complete and original the price is actually fairly good for a nicer skip tooth cruiser. If it is in actual riding condition with no issues I would say worth $200-300 to the tight buyer even with the heavy petina. I do agree the clamshell light is pretty cool even if it is just basically a flashlight tacked onto the fender

Assuming it's all original and undamaged the issue I have is with the various paint colors. At this point would those just be left on? I imagine it would be pretty hard to strip to get to anything original if it still existed.

If you want to keep it, see how other people are doing the stripping.
If you want to sell it, leave it like it is.
You can see what is the collectors opinion in :
The Classic and Antique Bicycle Exchange
Rat Rod Bikes
Here are people interested in prewar bikes

This is the first tank I have seen with a knee recess. Was this a common feature at one time?

Should be a Goodyear Skyhawk built by Columbia. Maybe in not a prewar, maybe early 50's. In this case probably it worth a little bit less than I said before, around 250

On TheCabe is a guy MrColumbia who knows a lot of the Columbia bikes, he can help a lot.

They never mention the wheel size in the ad. Something about the scale looks off, though my eye isn't trained. It'd be worth asking if it's 26" or a 24" kid's bike (less desirable).

You can soak the frame in wood bleach (Oxalic acid) to mitigate the rust.

Right but then you have to do something with paint

$100 still sounds like a great deal. Even for a 24" you still have a niece or nephew, if not a kid who would love this.
