Here’s my new oldest bike. It’s a skiptooth 1945 Westfield Columbia Paratrooper. I had it shipped from the states so it wasn’t cheap but it was just too cool to pass up! It comes apart into 2 pieces and the handlebars fold down. It was originally designed this way so that it can be strapped to a paratrooper jumping out of a plane, how cool is that? The design was popular even after the war so they kept producing them and that’s what mine is. Check out the National Bicycle History Archive of America for their cool article on this bike.
