Need help identifying pre-war cruiser

Trying to identify, tough since it has missing head badge! I have tried Columbia and Hawthorn head badges so far, but they don't line up. holes for head badge are slightly off set and horizontal. The chain ring is later pre war schwinn i think.
I doubt many parts are original, it has 28" Sturmey archer rims on old bendix hubs.

I think I have a winner! I bought a Rollfast head badge after trying first a Columbia and a Hawthorn, and the rivet holes line up perfectly.
Coincidentally since I bought it for the other skiptooth I just bought that was claimed to be a Rollfast and was missing it's head badge too! Now it looks like I have two Rollfast cruisers from different eras one from the 20's and one from the 30's to early 40's.
