    A friend's dad is cleaning out the garage to sell his house. The friend showed me pics of a bunch of bikes and asked if they were worth anything. I asked them to put this one aside for me.

    That sticker on the seat tube says Golden Isles Hot Rod, which gets no Google hits, so I have no idea.

    After picking at the tape on seat a little, it says RALLY with a pair of crossed flags. A Google search for "rally banana seat" gets me pics that suggest that was a Sears accessory.

    I have some Ross bits and pieces in the boneyard that will help me start getting this together.

    That's right, Ross. That bike has numerous features, dropouts, 3 holes in the headtube, bottom bar on the bottom bracket, R serial number showing the year. The paint on yours looks pretty good.
