Default Can you identify this Motorcycle Frame?

I purchased this frame at a garage sale but I'm having a hard time identifying what it is.
The wheels kinda reminds me of a Honda Trail but none of the Honda frames that I see on ebay look similar.

Any idea on what it is?

Put the pictures on a free 3rd party site like imageshack and use the forum html code. I doubt that anyone is going to bother registering at the site you are using in order to see the pictures. You'll find imageshack to be pretty handy.

okay, thanks for the advice on where to host pictures.
I added the URL to the pics at imageshack in to the first post.

I sure hope somebody can identify the above frame and approximate year!!

It looks like an old "minibike" frame.

When I was a kid my friend had one. I'm not sure what kind of motor was in it but maybe Briggs and Stratton.

I have an old picture of me riding around on it in a bathing suit, no shirt, no shoes, no helmet, no nothing and I was probably about 10.

The good old days!

Most old mini bikes didn't have front and rear hub brakes and a such heavy gauge frame like this one. Plus the steering tube is huge with real bearings, front and rear suspension, etc....

It's built heavy like an old trail bike. Much like those made by one of the big 4 (Honda,Yamaha,Kawasaki,Suzuki). Unfortunately I can't find any matches from web searches, ebay, etc...
Even at the oldminibikes.com forum I posted it on has come up empty on guesses as of yet.

There were minibikes back in the 60s with heavy frames and suspensions and usually had Briggs and Stratton engines. Companies that made them came and went. No telling who made it. Mscuddy might no but he seldom comes here any more.
