From the looks of the forks, pedals, brakes &, cottered crankset that's probably early 70's (or older maybe 60's) vintage. It looks like it's in pretty good shape & almost complete except for the missing front brake caliper & front fender stays. That would be a tough bike to ride with a fixed single speed hub. Better versions probably came equipped with three speed hubs. I know these bikes are desirable because people ask me about them occasionally. Fix it up. You could probably get $100 for it.
