Looks like a Cleveland Welding bike, probably early to mid 50s (just a guess).

See what brand coaster brake it uses, that might provide a better hint at the age. Also look for a serial number on the bike frame.

similair bike

I wish you could look this up by serial number grrrr! Mines an earlier model, I THINK it MAY be a 1940 pageboy bike but there are a few dfferences from the pictures I have seen of those. My serial is MI310124. Wondering if it's Michigan...? Grrrr I don't know. Why did they even bother with the numbers if they are sooo useless now...?

Serial numbers are just about worthless on almost every brand of bike out there. There is just a short list of bikes where there is any information available.
