Today I ran across a 2005 Whizzer NE5 (complete bike) that I can pick up for roughly $300 and change. Now I know that Whizzer is now mfr'd in Taiwan but is it a better engine to have than the Chinese 2 strokes? From what I have read there are quite a few mods that need to be done before it will even keep up with the 2 stroke.
I do like the drive ring on the Whizzer and think they are more period correct for my build.
Durability is something I want to keep in mind as well.
Please chime in as soon as you can. I don't think the Whizz will be around long at that price.

Thanks for your help.
just so you know thats a $1700 bike new and i thought the one i still want to kill myself for not having the money to buy at $650 was a good deal a stock whizzer will blow a 66cc china engine away a modded one will keep up with a 99cc predator another thing is it has everything on it to keep the cops away

its a 4 stroke also so reliability wont be a problem if you get it to run right the china 2 stroke is a 50/50 in that respect
Are you callin' me crazy! just cuz i got a hotel in my foot doesn't make me a boogali moogali moogali

Schwinn jaguar with a 66cc flying horse
