Default Out of the shed and back on the road

My Whizzer fell apart. Actually the tear down is to freshen everything up and get the rust off the chrome. Maybe put a Morrow hub in the rear wheel and some different bars and controls. Hopefully it will only take a couple of weeks.

Got it all cleaned up, rubbed out, waxed and back up on 2 wheels. Lots of dings and dents for extra character. I found a matching tire for the front and trying different bars. Also laced up an earlier Sturmey Archer brake hub for the front and put a Morrow in the rear. Cleaned up the motor as well and have it mocked up in the display stand. Still have to dig out a belt guard and decide what controls to use. Would like to put a Donut Derelicts Whizzer ride together soon.

Thanks chain, I don't like to use the Whizzer mounting clamps, They let the motor move around too much for me.

Hey Dale,

Great to see you working, rather hard I might add, on a motorized bike project. I missed having you in the pits at the last Grange race, and was hoping you still had the bug for our beloved hobby.

Hey, if you do plan on a Derelict Donuts Run sometime this Summer, please let me know. I've got my bike pretty well sorted out, and I have a bike carrier for my car, so I would like to join you sometime. I'm going to born free with CCC on June 28th, and I'm busy Fourth of July weekend, but after that I could make it.

I said it before, but that's one sweet machine you have there.

Gilbert

It must feel good to spiff things up on that very classic ride. Nice...

Thanks Ray. Looks like it's going to be a little more than a couple of weeks. Progress is slow.

Thanks Gilbert. Good to hear from you. I still like to mix it up on the track but had too many conflicts this time. I will be sure to get with you for a ride this summer.
