You’ve got to love theme/color scheme quality that we witness regularly on the owner submitted Coluhuffrrays. Really, they’re unrivaled by their “serious” OTS counterparts. This particular retina-searing example is a Columbia Lenox sent in by James M.
Year: 70′s or 80′s????
This 26″ Columbia Lenox 10 speed was given to me by an elderly neighbor who was moving.
He said my son would grow into it in a few years. When I received the bike,
both tires were flat, all the chrome was rusted and pitted and the chain would not stay on.
I almost threw the bike away but I put it in my basement where it sat for several years.
I finally got around to cleaning the bike up a bit. New tires and tubes, cleaned the chrome as best I could,
adjusted the derailleurs to keep the chain from falling off and lubricated the chain and cables. Turns out the bike rides pretty nice.
Wonder if the readers here could help pinpoint the actual year this bike was produced. The color scheme says 70′s but I wonder if it could be from the 80′s. Both derailleurs, the rear spoke guard and the shifters are all made by SUNTOUR. I included a photo of what appears to be a serial number.
Regardless, I will continue to enjoy riding this bike.
Thanks in advance,
