maybe they only made tires for the bikes bearing their
name on the badge. i don't know. but, the tires on my bike
say goodyear made in usa. they are cracked all-to-heck.

I believe it was a give-away item for tire purchase years ago. Columbia being a big mass-marketer of inexpensive bikes in days gone by. My first bike was a columbia, bought for me by my grandfather in 1972.

i have a guy wanting to buy it.
i'm having a rough time desciding
whether to keep, or sell. i have nearly
nothing invested. can make a snice little profit now.
or maybe i should put it in the shed for awhile.
maybe someday i'll make a better profit. its suppose
to be a 1963 model. desisions...desisions..

I do not believe Goodyear has made bicycle tires for 35 years.
