Ruled out Davis -serial numbers not consistent with Davis
Questioning Miami, Columbia
Like to hear your thought s
( yah I know fork is tweaked ! Lol )
Early flat fenders ( olive with black stripes and darts )
Cool tillers
New Departure A points to early 20’s to late teens possibly
Nice chains on wood rims
Davis looking frame lugs
its identity was robbed when someone swiped the badge ! Man than sucks pretty ornate badge design .
But there is a perfect outline of old badge to help
( see cheesy outline sketch I doodled )
This bike is going to sales post but wanted some info first.
Thank you
Mark

What does the serial number look like? It has Miamiesque features but fender bridges don’t look fat enough. I’m kinda leaning Westfield but trumpet mouth construction is throwing me. Better pics of dropouts? Cool bike regardless. V/r Shawn

From my limited knowledge I don't think the dropouts look Westfield. They used a rounded filler piece at teh end of the dropouts like this teeens-20s westfield motobike frame I have. Learned this from Patrick of course!

That looks like a future rider, should clean up nice with a healthy dose of patina! Those forks are in much better shape then my Pierce forks when I found it. Great find. Good luck with your research.

Maybe Snyder-Rollfast.

Although not a match for the profile outlined, its style may match the fancy arch bar truss frame; (if the side holes match).
I believe that Victor had a "Brewster's" million green.

Beautiful bike. I'm seeing similarities between your bike and this 2 tone green machine.

Thin stay braces and ovalized chainstay are quite similar. Dropouts, headset, chainring, red oxide primer with 2 tone green paint also close, but of course those alone are not enough to i.d..

At this time I would guess the bike in the link below is a Excelsior Mich.City Ind. which might mean that yours is as well.

This is the best part of finding “Badgeless” bike
Appreciate the feedback and extra info.
Thank you

Few different items on this bike that doesn’t help in making a quick decision of manufacturer.
Paint scheme and darting pattern does look dang similar
