I just bought this bike today and could use some help identifying it. I want to restore it and could use some advice on repainting and replating versus leaving it original. I like survivors but this one is pretty rough. The paint is 95% missing and so is the head tube badge. Thanks!

I have seen an early Westfield double-D drive sprocket just like that one.
Note the air where a drive pin hole might otherwise be located, (but a hole is just air).
Crank threads look fairly coarse to me, Westfield may have used 20 threads per inch at one time.
Westfield designs may have deep (old) roots back to various ABC (ToC) manufacturers, which they absorbed.

Have to agree with the parts that look somewhat Chicagoan; perhaps a mix then?

I haven`t posted in a while but I`m 99% sure this bike was made by the Davis Sewing Machine Co around 1919. It`s similar to a greyhound. The fork is the giveaway. The truss rod and fork are all cast as one piece. The truss rods are not removable.
Now to find a head badge. If anyone has a head badge for sale please contact me. Thanks!
