Come on man.... don't be hating on the guys bike!
"That is a true cheap and cheesy Murray or Huffy that just reeks of low quality of it's time."
That bike is a good bike, and those bikes have very good frames that I would put up against the $300-$400 china bikes today, I will admit the rear dropouts just being spot welded would be served well being welded proper before motorizing one those older bikes, but other wise they are a good stout framed bike in my experience.
I know you aren't being negative here scotto but it kinda sounded that way with the cheap cheesy comment.....LOL!

Gotta love the smashed and spot welded rear drop-outs along with the stamped out goose neck. Mass production was the main reason that builds just got cheaper and cheaper in quality to keep the costs down.
You did a great job on it......looks as good as new!
