1980 Columbia Pro Am Team

These are some pics from an ebay auction. This is the Columbiagoose frame that I have been looking for.

I am still looking for this bike in blue with fake yellow tuff wheels. This bike has the Goose gusset, cigarette box and seatstay. This is only one of many goose copies from bitd. I can only guess that BMX products took legal action against these companies.

Re: 1980 Columbia Pro Am Team

I had a Black and Yellow version called the Trans Am Team,  Yellow Troxell Trackmaster Tuff I copies on it.  I remember I compared the drop out to a true goose and thought the only difference was the tubes on the Columbia were crimped closed unlike the picture above where it was welded on.  Also I had a bike lock on the seat post.  The lock rubbed off the paint.  The rear seat stay part rusted but the front did not.  Also the front reflector bracket attached to the headset scrapped the paint off the top tube when the handle bars spun 360, That area was clearly chrome plated under the paint. However the rear triangle was did not appear to have that chrome under the paint.  I had this bike in '79 or '80. It was stolen in '82.  My first BMX.  I miss it.

Re: 1980 Columbia Pro Am Team

I recently picked one up from a guy near Bloomington Illinois... white frame and forks, forks have prism Trans Am Team decals.  Looks to be all original except for the seat post (wrong size pounded in) and grips (Oakly 3 Team Cycle copies)...all the trim outs are red to go with the white frame... Oddly the chain guard is black but looks to have remnants of blue paint on the inside and the back rim is showing blue under the red paint... visable because someone added a gold dia-comp rear brake set.  When I aquired the bike it had an old school red/clear bike chain weaved around the seat post and through the hole in the frame behind the seat... guy didn't know combination but I cracked it.  Thanks to your post and picks I was able to positively ID the make of this bike, I only knew it was one of many Motomag clones but had no clue which one...   I had the frame blasted and powder coated and am using the pads and seat in the build, the forks were badly rusted but the decals were still nice so I didn' blast them, just sat them aside... the other parts are rough so the all went into a box to save but will not be used in the build... I will post pics when I am finished.
