    I have a vintage chain ring that I am trying to best-match to a Westfield project or to another "unknown" bike project.
    I want to deviate from the fairly-standard 26-tooth 1"-pitch, for bikes that will not have to be walked up moderate hills.
    I have enough 26-11 x 28" projects (2.36 ratio)
    This one has 48 teeth, 1/2"-pitch, which I can mate with a 24 tooth rear for a respectable 2.0 ratio.

    I call it a 4-bean design, not quite a clover.
    It is fat a 3/16" wide, maybe from 1940's?
    So, I am not sure if this one is later Westfield, or CCM (Canadian -eh), or other?
    Any help appreciated.

    Okay, looks Columbian. I see another one with the double-D drive.

    Don't think they made any bikes in Columbia

    Maybe that's what Steely Dan were singing about-"the Cuervo Gold, the fine Columbian..."
