Old Tricycle, any help?

I recently came across an old trike at a yard sale and picked it up for $35. I decided i wanted to restore the trike and have had trouble trying to identify the make. I came acros a tiny sticker with a patent # on it and I found out it is a Gobby Tricycle with twin chain drive. Other than the patent information I can't seem to find out anything else about the bike or the manufacturer. I found an archived posting on another bicycle forum but no one had any insite about the trike. I've kind of stalled on the restoration because I'd like to learn more about it so I can restore it correctly. Any information would help. Thanks

Post some Pics here! It's likely that people might know it by sight or even another name.
