My father found this old bike hanging in a barn. Guy didn't know much about it. Found an Elgin King head badge in the dirt underneath it. The bikes in pieces and he would like to rebuild it back to original. Anybody know what it is, how old, etc...?

Here is mine, Elgin King that I believe is about 1908 and sold by Sears and Roebuck.

Wow that poor front fork sure took a hard hit and looks like the frame is bent also. Truth is may not be worth your trouble to salvage it. Nice seat though that's worth some money. Personally I'd invest my money in a bike more complete and with less damage to be perfectly honest, it would likely cost you fewer $$$ in the long run.

I have seen the chain ring identified as Rollfast with the detail of the clover leafs or 4 holes, between the holes is a notch or extension of the wedge shapes;.
