Default Re: motor lists

Here is a Travis Bike Motor Kit installed on a Schwinn bicycle. Power Products offered two models of the Travis Motor kit. The one shown in the picture above features the larger gas tank with the 1.5 HP motor. The other model featured a smaller gas tank that looks like a canteen. This version had a 1 HP motor. Both models has an all chrome finish as an option. The kits retailed between $69.99 to $89.99 back in 1949.
