    I had a Berlin Racycle (Canadian) with a Fauber crank. Sold the bike last spring so don't have it in front of me now.

    I am new to these bikes myself so not an expert, but my theory is that Berlin used Miami parts until they went under, then switched to Davis. I think the key to identifying your bike as a Berlin-Racycle would be the badge. Your badge holes are vertical while this one is horizontal, so it's unlikely?

    p.s. I've never seen that fork crown before. ...Curse those people who remove badges, eh?
