Mine does have a single cruved top tube Also known as the camelback frame from 1932 even though its a 1980 just like the caliber 30-06 the calber itself is the history of the gun in wich case its going to be a nice ride just a thick cloud of envy

tony jr, they are all worth a little hassle IF someone will ride them. The Speedster is a lower-end model. It won~t make you rich, but if not collectible, with normal maintenance it will be a great rider. You don~t specify condition, size or location. It might not be worth shipping but you will be able to get something if you sell it. Here~s a link, with thanks again to Tom Findley, to the Speedster in the 1959 catalog. It shows 3 different frame sizes and 3-speed, 2-speed and coaster options.
