Default Mini bike Id?

Ok,what did I buy? I know a mini bike but what brand and how old and what kind of engine?
Thanks for any help.
I was told it is Not Bonanza, Cyclops, Mini-GT, or Rupp from what a friend tells me that collects them. He said it could be western auto,which if like lawnmowers would be made by 1 of the other companys.

I aint sure what I am going to do with this thing.May take it apart,clean it in the electrolosis bucket and blast the wheels and make repairs and maby trade it on something else I can make use of better, I cant even ride a bicycle and I buy a minibike.What am I thinking? save it from the junkman I guess
