Here is a prized find. A cool old skip-toothed bike. Missing a fork but otherwise something to consider re-building. Any ideas on make and model would be helpful. Thanks!
Looks early, and possible a tall frame too?
Detail of compass crank.

Thanks...may be. I guess that is why head-badges are so cool to discover intact and virgin. (?)
Just pulled up what I could on Kastan. looks like they only go back to 1986..way to recent for this frame. I think originally this had 28 inch wooden rims and was for a very tall person. the seat tube rises to 23 inches from crank housing . Top bar is 22 inches from seat stem to goose neck. Measurement on remaining front fork tong is 15 inches. From rear dropouts to neck is 39 inches.
Just pulling your leg on that one.
You pulled it good ! With so many makers at the turn of the 20th century ..heck, I thought it was something to check out! Looks like I learned something again.....I like it when that happens!
