Look Ma, No Hands!
Good morning/afternoon/evening everyone.

I'm hoping that you can help shine some light on a recent acquisition of ours. The bicycle has a Dayton head badge, but the tank is labeled as a Dayton Friction Toy Co. motor. The only Friction Toy Co. objects I can find are (very cool) toy miniatures. I'm hoping that anyone can help me ID the Dayton bicycle itself and have more information on the motor.

This bicycle is going on display as soon as I have enough information to put it out, in case anyone would like to see it!
