The lower position of the truss tube has me thinking that it may be post war; 1919+.
The chain ring sprocket looks of the Mead family; and a "franken-crank" repair.
The hollow seat post looks like the 1916 EJ Lonn patent 1,204,797.
It is a motorbike model.
Any serial number?

I have begun to resign to believe that Great Western Manufacturing, La Porte Indiana may have used alphabet letters beginning with an “A” in about 1915.
GWM seat posts are sometimes stamped with the US Patent numbers (which have date associations).
We also see the Fauber threaded and notched bottom bracket; (again means earlier GWM).
The handle bar looks upside down; and the seat post backwards.
