I have aquired a columbus track frame butg the bird has two heads. Ihave compared it with other colonbus tubing and most ( well all) only have one head. WHAT DOES A TWO HEADED BIRD MEAN??? HELP
Twice as good???
But on topic,
Marty - didn’t that yellow Russian thing on Roadgrime have a two headed bird logo? I will try and find it tomorrow.
It had Falc tubes, no two headed birds.
it is a europa built by abeni( aquired from GYPSY) if that helps… is TC out there lurking …any site online that would have a list?
yer yer very funny , i could have guessed the 3 headed fish thikng. but now some help
Have a look here , maybe throw up a post in the help section.
My europa has Oria tubing but it wasn’t built by Abeni.
There is some info about europa’s here:
Take a picture of your sticker and put it up.
what does the frame columbus decal look like?
Is the only reason you think it’s columbus is because of the two-headed bird? Photos!!?
here is the best i could do for a photo
it has the words tubi rintorate garantiti above the bird/s and
acciaio speciale on either side of the bird.
hope this helps as i know the style of writing used to write columbes makes a says something about era.
Sure that’s not the birds right wing?
Tubi rinforzati garanti = Guaranteed reinforced tubing.
Doppio spessore = double butted
Columbus SL ~1981, so this is either older Cr-Mo maybe butted, maybe not, or a repaint.
That’s my bike!
God, he’s even an engineer in italian .
thats why he is both ‘global’ and ‘mupppet’. So can i assume it is SL?
You can’t assume it’s SL, it may or may not be butted. If it takes a 27.2 seatpost, it probably is.
Thats me old Europa yes? I noticed that when i had but yes i thought it was just the other wing…
yer your old pony do you have any idea gypsy
Nup. Like i said i came to the conclusion it was the other wing an optical illusion…
