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!

As much as I say leave it alone-I don't think you can hurt it- ask again in 20 years

The closest match I have seen yet is an Emblem Greyhound. The sprocket is a match but I can`t find many pics of them online.

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?

Fork, truss' and missing badge look Schwinn to me.
Could be a little frankenbike'd.
