Looks like a mid-50s American, but you may be missing a letter in that serial number ...
The bike's worth alot of money to the right person. BobHufford is dead-on . I had a '66, different name. It had the 2-speed, both tough to pedal, it was good for paper delivery though. Having 2-speeds caught my attention to your post.
Thank you for the replies. Your correct Bob, There is a 'P'.
It's a 55, F14, 26" Manufactured Sept,14th, 1954. I have gotten some interest in that front brake, rather rare I gather.
