Witcomb USA Racing Bike - Need info

Hello everyone,
I have owned a 20" childrens single speed racing bike from the company Witcomb USA for a few years now. I have done
quite a bit of research and have come up with nothing on the bike. I have no idea of the bike model, bike year, or the value.
I am hoping that you guys could help fill me in on some of the question i have for this bike

The bar tape and the addition of brakes are the only things I have changed from when i first got the bike
The serial number of the bike is 449164
The seat tube has a badge that says Liotto Gino on one side and Vicenza on the other side
The head tube's sticker is worn off and the words are unrecognizeable

Here is a picture

I do have more pictures although these pictures came out very large so for now just one and more on request

Thanks for the help!

No info and not sure on value, sorry...
But these tiny little road bikes seem to pop up from time to time and there's always some interest. I imagine that if this were fixed up and marketed to the right person, it could fetch a pretty penny. Pretty cool little bike.

(I actually saw an almost identical one earlier today in the local used bike shop—I can't remember if it was actually a "Witcomb"—but it was sweet. Set up with chop-and-flop bars... tiny tarck bike!)

I never realized that Witcomb made kids bikes. As far as I know, they were headquarted in Connecticut and the frame builders Richards Sachs and Peter Weigle worked for them, before going out on their own.
