      Is it a Madwagon too? This frame looks a lot like mine but mine is dark black.

      The bike shown was a Huffy Cranbrook from Walmart. It was a nice, low cost project which was later stolen and recovered with a seized engine (of course). It did make a very nice looking bike and I could not tell a difference in ride between it and the Schwinn Landmark. You may have to enlarge the hole in your rear sprocket to fit over the hub, I did and I also had to bend the brake arm in two directions to fit but it worked fine. Be aware that coaster brakes are not adequate for full speed riding, it's possible to add front calipers. The front frame of the Cranbrook was very large so I had to fabricate a way to make it work with the engine mount. Newer engines have a much larger front mount. Hope the info helps a bit. You'll likely have to notch the rear fender to miss the chain. Keep a close watch on the fender mounts, they will break easily from vibration.
