Oil port on top = SC
Lack of oil drain hole = prior to 1955
Lack of filed rear dropout = prior to 1953

Quite a few of them seemed to pop up in the 1980's on road bikes, and some of the current Electra hybrids have 32h rims.

A local builder put mine on about 1993.... The bridge was so high that there wasn't anything that I could find that made me comfortable loaded. Maybe extra long Tectro dual pivots now?...
