addition

the Roddy name is a brand primarily known for sports equipment, mostly sports fishing.

bicycle likely done as a contract build for them.

if you are able to post additional detail photos other readers may be able to suggest the actual manufacturer of the machine.

Bikes: No-name LH drive track. Also ride an Exxon Graftek, a Masi, a Trek R200 or a RR Boneshaker for fun!

The Roddy brand actually dates from at least the 1970's and "Roddys came from Roddy Auto Parts stores. They were made in China out of possibly the world's worst components and heaviest scrap metal frames." (a quote from fellow BikeForum member amadorbiker).

Not to be confused with "Roddy Racing" --- an obscure brand 10-speed of which I have the only one I have seen.
