I just bought this prewar track bike that does not have any markings on the frame as far as the manufacturer goes. It has BSA hubs and headset, Phillips cranks and bb, Schwinn Paramount adjustable stem, wood rims that are peaked and a leather saddle with a nose support. (no not my nose, but the saddles nose). There is a oil port on the BB, and has very pretty lugs. The headset has integrated headcups like the early Paramounts did. I can not find any name on the seat, but it is a bit unusual in that is has screws instead of rivits on the back. Check out the pictures at

Cany anybody offer any leads on the maker of this frame? How about the seat?

Thanks in advance,
