Anyone ever heard of this "brand"? I've come across one with a mix of parts. Columbus Aelle tubing. Nice lugs. It's interesting, but not my size.

It's BCA or Bicycle Corporation of America.
Mostly gaspipe type stuff, with, apparently, some higher end stuff too. I passed on a super clean, very original "gaspipe" BCA last year for $100. Kinda regret it, but kinda not.
Edit: I found this thread which has some other info https://www.cyclingforums.com/threads/bca-bike.424518/

Unfortunately, the frame and/or fork on it are pretty bent. I posted it in the wacky thread. If it weren't messed up, it would probably be at my house by now.

That's the bike. It's for sale again. I wondered about the head tube. And that explains the nice Tange fork.

Thanks for the info on manufacture.

I am pretty sure that BCA got the frames from Asia and assembled bikes in Easton, PA. One passed through my hands many years ago - it was a low end hybrid. Somewhere between a mountain bike and an ATB.
