I voted for the 40#-50# range, but that is my upper limit load and is usually during colder weather. I can halve that in the warmer months.

It has a Wrights 701 saddle on it. First one like that I have ever seen. Very nice!

I would guess the bike is from the 1930's.

A whole bunch. Some are can be ridden come cannot. Most were were purchased at low cost or given to me. I enjoy tinkering with them. I do sell or give one away occasionally.
