    Anybody recognize this bike?

    Bought this for parts and I was curious if anyone knew the maker and/or approximate age?

    Thanks!

    A pre war (or late 40s) something or other. Got any other pictures?

    No other pics yet, my dad bought it for me at an auction in another state and sent me the pic. I'll see if I can get him to send another one or two. No headbadge, and the chainguard is bent at a 90 degree angle so i can't quite see the shape. I was going to ask why pre-war or 40's but then I realized it does have a skip-tooth chainring! Too cool, first one of those I've found. I wanted it because it had a license plate from my small rural hometown which I had been hoping to find for a few years now, (it was actually wrapped around the head tube like a head badge) and an Androck front basket.

    Maybe a Ward's Hawthorne like ebay item 170400692822? Has similar swirl pattern chainring though i think a different number of holes... I think mine has a Troxel seat.

    Thanks for the replies.
