No, those pics just don't give any detail. For an American '10spd' aren't the usual suspects Ross, Schwinn and Trek? I mean the big guys making quality lugged bikes. Did any of them use chrome socks?

Whatever the model is, i'll guess it's in the lower end of the lineup based on the stamped drops and claw hanger.

Also, the hubs don't match, and it looks like a steel seatpost.

Looks to be a just OK lesser mid level bike from the early 70's with mostly cheaper none original components, nothing seems to match. As Presented dusty neglected likely none working needing a complete overhaul and some new components worth about $100 with half of that being for the nice crank set and pedals and seat.

Agreed, stamped dropouts and cable stops typically point towards an entry level, hi-tensile steel frame. However this one appears to have some decent components that are more mid-range. I suspect it was gradually updated over the years. I wouldn't rule out Asian origin. Better pictures and the serial number may yield more clues.

Unfortunately, those are the best photos currently available. Found the listing on CL. Had very little detail. Interest was piqued by Chrome socks, and crankset looked decent, from photos.
