I agree with the exception of there being a pulley mount. Looks like a band clamp to me and the NDS side doesn't reveal one either. Maybe its a transitional frame, caught between models. @nlerner has a '49 in blue and the EA1 rims push the age in that direction. I'd love to see some chrome on the frame and fork but the pics aren't there.
