Why the double post? Was 42 minutes too long to wait for answer on a Sunday morning?

I suspect it is a just a basic bike from the '70s boom era.

One morning you wake up, the girl is gone, the bikes are gone, all that's left behind is a pair of old tires and a tube of tubular glue, all squeezed out"

Looks like a 70's low end Japanese built bike. Could have been sold under just about any brand name. Nothing I'd put much effort into and I've fixed up some pretty low end bikes in my day.

I do not see a single part on that bike worth saving. This one was in the tip for a good reason. Bringing it back to life will exceed the value of the project when it is finished. First rule of projects: start with something decent.

The outside looks terrible and you haven't even got into the bearings etc.
