My bike starts off going about 14 mph and shaking then quickly dies down to about 4mph still shaking during a quick ride around the block or dies completely and I have to pedal to keep the engine running I check it after and the carb is flooding but there was never a problem with the carb before and everything is tight as can be what could be the problem?

with motor cooled down, grab top bar of frame behind gas tank and top of motor with other hand - if you pull hard on motor and it does not move at all, then I'd look for a crack in the frame

did you try hitting the carb bowl hard with a heavy screwdriver? the knocking could get it working again. but there could be something stuck in the carb from the gas tank. do you have a gas line filter too?
