This is what I believe to be a Robin. Has stainless Oriole fenders, new tires, grips, tubes. Triple drop rims. I have a chain for it also. Needs a kickstand and pedals. Asking $550 FIRM plus shipping. Can be delivered to Jim Fraziers swap meet in Stockton,Ca. This Saturday.

Thinking this might be a custom Job but Cool AF and priced right. Just how long is that top tube?

If its custom, it was done a very long time ago. I honestly think it's real. The forks are bent as well so maybe they rebrazed the tubes after the forks were bent? It looks like I'll end up keeping it unless someone steps up? Jim @JAF/CO makes the tank out of fiberglass that I almost purchased today at his swap meet....so we'll see.

Somewhere on here someone posted pics of their Westfield built, tankless, single top tube, OG paint Robin type frame bike. All I remember it was blue and I wanted it so bad. Its in either the what bike did you ride today or give it your best shot or some other unwieldy thread that is way to big to dig through. That could be what you have here.

If it's gun metal gray it's more.then likely a 38 bluebird frame. Especially if it doesn't have headtube grease zerks

$550 FIRM plus shipping. All it needs is a chain, the fender brace rivets, and to be serviced. New tires and tubes and grips.

My plan was to add a long spring seat and a fiberglass tank and ride it. Patina match the tank and have a very fun and affordable bike everyone will admire for being different.
