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?

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.
