Does anyone know what kind of bicycle this is? Has stamped "B60" under saddle.

Ran across this at an auction. Wrap on tires should be on this week, or some sort of glue on tires that the guy at the bike shop said it required. We have searched google for hours and have found no matches, especially the engraved name in the green bar under the saddle. Any help would be greatly appreciated and thank you in advance!

Picture isn't visible.

The tires are called tubular tires.

I can't tell you too much, except that it appears to be a nicely made frame with Nervex lugs and a mixed bag of quality components. Someone else may know more.

Your link to the pictures is not quite right, here's a better link:

Trying to make out the script on the stamp, I thought at first it said "Nathan." But looking again, is that an umlaut over what would be the t? The first letter is tricky, too. Could be an X, an N, a V, maybe even a Y. Best of luck!
