Brant, how about post #3 in this thread about Colson Flyers. Also hard to find serial number.

Nice steel. I'm gonna lean towards a Snyder built "Vim" 1918-1920's. Nothing solid, just lots of crumbs leading to a guess. Vim was a jobber by the teens and being from NY, I'd think Snyder would make sense to order frames from as it would be less freight costs than say ordering from Schwinn.

Good reference materials above from Chitown. Could be an early Snyder with this ring? I could not find this example in the sprocket compilation...anyone else have an original bike with this sprocket? Below a very informative thread regarding Consolidated Manufacturing up till 1916 when they concentrated on Munitions for the war...... Davis purchased the Yale/Snell badge rights and took over frame/fork making till their demise in 1925/6. Frame is interesting for sure with no markings. Reference by @dmk441
And the Consolodated frame with lug construction.
