    Its not a rainbow frame...its a cantilever frame. Looks AMF, could be a Roadmaster, but that doesn't look like a Roadmaster badge.

    Most any bike with a tank is worth $50. How can you lose?

    AMFs may not get a lot of love, but it is a 50+ year old bike with a tank...so, :113:.

    The chain wheel and everything is late 50's AMF. It used the seatpost that tightens like a handlebar stem, no collar on the frame. Looks like someone stuck something in there, but shouldn't be hard to fix. Worth 50 bucks even without the fork.

    Thank You . I have arranged to pick it up next month . (payday )
    This gentleman picked up a truck full of bike parts at the end of some car auction . He's a car guy , so he just wants to recoup his investment . He's only 30 minutes away .

    I'd take a few extra bucks and buy some of those parts. Or all of 'em! :dance2:
