    Picked this today and cannot find any markings or a serial l number anywhere on it. Has a pretty distinctive star pattern skip tooth chainring on it. The saddle is rad as well, very long springs. Any ideas on make/model?

    Awesome! Any idea on what it's worth as is? I don't think I'm going to have room for it Bought it just for the saddle really

    Sweet! Would it be worth separating the saddle and post or keep it all as is? I'm open to selling the saddle if it's worth a few bucks

    You shouldn't over-think this man......It's not that special...part it out or sell the whole thing. I don't need it but I'll give you $100 shipped...

    The whole thing! Paint is gone. Plating is gone. Badge is gone. Truss rods missing. Wheels gone. Damaged & badly pitted metal. Crank is for sure shot. Any remaining bearings are most likely toast. Pedals probably bent and not useable. Great start to a rat, but there is not much there to work with. I don't mean to be disrespectful, but it has seen better days my friend. I say keep it and rat it out to ride it yourself. That's what I would do...skpc.
