I don't know but looking at the wheels, the spokes and yeah, the lack of braze-ons or anything, makes me think it is a racing type bike.
I did some touring with a guy who bought a 'really sweet bike' off the internet, kind of on a whim. Problem was, it was a really sweet racing bike, the tires were so thin I was amazed that he didn't pop one of em on the tour. They had big chips and dents in them by the time we were done.
Also, there were no braze-ons so he had to jerry-rig up his bike with a rack and panniers. Riding behind him watching that stuff sway in the breeze like a flag was a hoot!!
I was on a cheap mtb that worked great and the slick tires on it held up way better. going offroad looking for campsites, he was definitely at a disadvantage.
I would keep lookin!
to the OP: why did I leave the plow in the field? THAT oldhomeplace?
