    That's what I was thinking. The BB gave me that idea. I think the wheels are wrong to the bike. It's for sale about a hundred miles from me with a '60s Murray girls bike in about the same shape.

    It's not even a parts bike. It's been listed for while.

    Don't know if this info is to late for you
    But that frame is a Stelber
    Made in New York if I remember correctly
    (I have a 24" frame waiting to be built)
    Btw not all of their bikes had the bend at the BB

    Stelber you say? Steller and Berkowitz. Two guys who ran a chain of department stores on the east coast. They started their own bike factory. Most were pretty low grade bikes according to everything I've read. I have a 3 speed Stelber Made in England (Raleigh or Phillips make).

    Stelbers were cheap import bikes, they later changed the name to Iverson, and those used mostly CBC/Ross parts and were higher quality. -Adam
