My bike is a columbia clipper manufactured by westfield mfg. Crank bottom serial # starts out B...083 can anyone tell me its age. I'm in the process of restoring it.
Normally frame / serial numbers are few and far between and often get overlooked on here because normally they don't lead anywhere.
However in this case as it's pre-war and you had the basic info needed (Westfield, Columbia, Clipper) the info was actually quite easy to track down.
Thanks to a guy called Mercian over here at The Classic & Antique Bicycle Exchange
It appears "B" was the date letter for 1935 (you need to scroll down a lot on the page i linked)
Some great info and images of various Westfield Columbia's, good luck with the restoration
