    Looks like a Miami motorbike frame and fork with detachable
    Westfield trussrods (Westfield purchased Miami Cycle Co.) ...
    and a 30-tooth .. Miami .. one-inch pitch chainring.

    Whats the point in a value if it's not for sale? Just put it on and say 100,000,000 and you will get a value.

    The least valuable piece is the fork.

    It's not quite a Miami because of those loose
    trussrods. For someone that wants to build a
    Miami ... this package would be of value.

    The Military badge may have been originally
    placed by Westfield. But a ''would-be'' builder
    of a Miami machine would not want that badge
    on her / his Miami rig.

    I see two packages here >>> the badge is one
    unit that could benefit someone ... AND everything
    else
    as the second unit.

    While I don't feel comfortable putting a cash value
    on either unit ... I will say your stumble could be a
    modest money-maker .. if you avoid dealing with a
    greedy hand.


    You are very fortunate.

    ....... patric

    Yea this bike was on here before. I know a few people wanted to buy it the first time around, but the owner would let it go, or wanted too much, or both....
