I now have some pictures of the bike, if that would help with someone telling me more about it!?
(Sorry about the blurry picture)

It's a Raleigh made for Huffy who branded it a Monark. That puts it between ~'58 (after Huffy purchased Monark) to '63 (after '63 Huffy made their own lightweights). It's hard to see in the pic...but, if it has a twist grip shifter it is a '63.

Interesting bike!

Easiest way to identify a Raleigh bike is the rear dropouts
