Built this recently and I love it... makes for a nice neighborhood beater. The frame (I was told) is something called a "starliner", tho I can't find any history for it online... it was apparently spray-painted red at some point, but its chrome under the paint (with patches of rust). You can't really tell from this angle, but the top tube is actually 4 tiny tubes (there are 2 more parallel to the ones visible in the picture).
It's built up with a wheelset off an 80's raleigh 3 speed that I turned into the base for my tallbike.
Oh, and that front brake squeals like a b!tch, so I know its a ratbike!
