Wore out three sets of tires already!
Recently found this, what I believe to be, 1920’s Iver J. Truss frame. Not quite sure what model it may be. Possible Racer? IJ handle bars and stem. Seat post also IJ. Very nice looking “Reading” saddle. Looks like the saddle may have had the springs attached at a later date. Wheels are 26” and rims are metal. New Departure model D hub in the rear. Front unknown. Possibly ND. Pedals definitely don’t belong, but original reflective teardrops. Doesn’t look like there were any fenders.

Overall, it’s a nice addition to my collection. I might be on the hunt for some period correct pedals, possibly some IJ 28” woodies? And 16” race handle bars…

NICE!

More likely it's a Superior Truss Bridge Roadster. The badge dates it at post 1921 (they added the patent info to it after 1921) I don't usually concern myself with memorizing serial numbers but here is the page from the 1922 Catalog. The headtube appears to have been painted green at some point which was an option for this bike. Yours is probably a little later than 1922, but someone who has memorized the serial numbering date ranges might be better help, or seek the thread "Iver johnson Solid and Stolid" and there's more info there. The link in my sig has the Digital Catalog collection that Cabers and others have graciously provided to me to curate.

*Edit, it looks like green paint is all over, so maybe the headtube green isn't original?

1922 Racers look like the rear wheel is much closer to the seat tube as many race frames are designed.
