Columbia, 1950, Durkopp Torpedo

US bicycle bought by Luciano Nicolis in 1985 in California, with a unique design and some sort of fuel tank under the horizontal tube.

COLUMBIA is an historical bicycle company. Its founder, Mr. Pope, was already a coachbuilder and managed to turn Columbia into the world’s largest bicycle producer in 1885.

A higher-than-average quality and unmatchable prices were the strong points.

Technical notes:

– Green/cream paint
– Complex front suspension
