I'm not sure of the bike, but that engine looks like an old Tecumseh

I found that if I edit my pics by cropping just a bit, they come out correct. I post from my phone.

orientation is a total mess alright,
but I can rotate the images on my side of the screen
if bad comes to worse,

what I cannot is seeing the left side of the bike AT ALL,
no matter how I rotate the image,
it'll always be either the back or the right...
no front no left *shrugs*

PS proper phone orientation helps a long way top of the phone pointing LEFT should do the trick in most cases (accelerometer [screen rotation] needs to be enabled though)

Nah.. I don't think it's a Thunderbird..

very close indeed at first glance,
but the seat loop on a ThunderBird is attached at it's center via a T-bar
that then goes to the main tube.
Here it's butted on it's outer edge to the main

Sidetubes are also afixed to the same T-bar on a Thunderbird not the rear of the loop..
sooo a much pointier triangle is formed for the rear of the bike.

and the list goes on...

No, I'm fairly certain it's NOT a Thunderbird.
