Subject: [CR] bike identification on Ebay

Anyone know what the following bike is that is posted on Ebay:


The seller refers to it as a Frankenbike (wasn't that the name for Franklin mountain bikes also?), and in the auction shown, that's a fairly apt name for it with all those scars and chips. The person also makes allusions to it as a Schwinn of some sort, including the possibility of it being a 1930's--at least an early version--of the Paramount track. It appears to have the Schwinn yellow color, but it is difficult to tell much because the photos are not terribly good (which, for me, however, builds confidence to find photos worse than mine.)
