On Training Wheels
A year or two ago, I bought this motorized bicycle off someone’s porch for 100 bucks.
All it needed was gas, clutch and throttle cables, and a little tuning.
Sadly, the rear fork or rim (couldn’t figure out which) was bent up after I changed the rear tire tube. I didn’t feel like fixing it, so I took the engine off and donated it to a shop class, and put the bike frame on the curb.
But something has always bothered me.
Nowhere on it, are there any intact identifying information.
I’ve been told by a local guy that it “might” be a Colombia bike, I’m thinking it’s a Schwinn.
Before I lost the rear fender, it did have a tag saying “Blossburg 1965” which is probably Blossburg PA, as I live in NY
Does anyone think they know what the frame is from?

Not a Schwinn maybe a Murray frame
 
Don’t worry, I’m not!
In fact, I’ve already got a new sweetheart, a 3-speed Murray Monterey that I got for free from a local mechanic!
Only problem is the tires are dry rotted, and it’s rusty, which is why I’ve decided to name it “Patina”.
