As the only springer was on the Firecat but that was a chopper of the same time frame. You could very well have a one of a kind. I think the forks are from an old schwinn though those were popular to have springers at that time. Either way It's gonna be cool when you're done. Please post some pics.

Here's a couple of the original ads for that bike. The full page ad even gives you the different tire sizes.
If Im not mistaken Schwinn never used a springer for like that.

This is a murry MX and an Murry/Otasco MX I own the Otasco (yellow and Black one)

Notice they have the same forks
