I have searched the best I can and can not determine what it is.  Maybe and Economy, Speedex or similiar.  The Wisconsin AEN dates 1955.  It has a banjo style rear end with chain drive to the wheels with a hand clutch.  The rims are 16 inch on the rear.  It has some signs of good fabrication and I was told it was bought new from a dealer by the owners father.  Any ID or info would be greatly appreciated.  I don't want to mess with it until I can hopefully find out what it may be.

Tim, :welcometogttalk: My  1st guess would be as you said, Economy. 2nd would make me think Sears/DB

but I'm 97.6% certain One of the other guys will nail it for you with no hesitation. Looks to be in great shape for it's age.

Welcome.

It's not a Sears-DB, I'm thinking early economy?? I love those rear portal style axles.

Could it be a Shaw?  There's a Do-All I remember seeing that looks similar, but that critter had a hood of sorts and a two cylinder.
