Saw it in the back of an older mans pickup truck asked him what he was doing with it and he said he was taking it to the scrap yard. I thought it was a neat old piece so I told him I'd buy it off him. Now that I have it, I would like to know some history about it and it's value, I can't find anything about it on the internet.

    To me, the sprocket looks like a Shelby. I've never heard of Keller & West but back in the day lots of department stores re-badged bicycles with their own badge.
    Post it up on the CABE (Classic, Antique Bicycle Exchange) forum as a 'What is this?' and I guarantee you get your answer!

    Just so you know, a full restoration is not necessary.
    I have several 'patina' bikes that I've rebuilt (regreased bearings, hubs and new tubes and tires) and ride 'as is'.
