Whatever happened to Michael Charles Swartz?

Certainly a pioneer in utalitarian American bicycling, GoodYear bicycle tires highlited young Mr. Michael Charles Swarz in the July 1959 Boy's Life Magazine:

"Michael Charles Swarz, 13 years old, honor carrier for the Columbus, Ohio, Dispatch. Michael delivers papers after school, Saturdays and Sundays - still finds time for his favorite sport, football. He's a star halfback as well as a fleet center fielder. On his bike you'll find a pair of tough, dependable Goodyear tires."

I wonder if Michael still rides bikes. I wonder if he still has his bike from 1959...

Mike, I was performing a search on Google trying to find info on him. Couldn't find any but stumbled upon this. Worth a look if you haven't seen it.
If everything seems under control, you're just not going fast enough...
