Default Where do I find information?

My dad was demolishing a house and found this under a tarp in the yard. It has a data plate that is half missing, but it says it was manufactured on Roosevelt Way in Seattle, Washington. Any information on what this thing is would be greatly appreciated.

That machine appears to be a "Forester". The Forester "trail bikes" were made in Seattle in the mid 1960s era. I found this information by Googling the words "Tote Goat", which is the name of a similar machine that I recall. (It may be "Tote Gote") The first site that comes up on Google is www.totegoteland.com. The site features pictures, adverts, and info on a number of different makes of these type bikes, and there is what appears to be an adverstising picture of a Forester brand bike that is very similar in construction to the one you found under the tarp. The fact that it was made in Seattle probably clinches it as being from the same maker.
