Default Straight Bar Whizzer

Since selling my Whizzer a couple years ago, pic. below... I have really missed it and decided to build another like it

I have a bunch of parts from a Briggs project that ended with an internally rusted out frame. I picked up a 1947H last June and sent it to Quenton for a rebuild ( details later) I just received a new solid frame and Sportsman tank from Norm at VMB and took use of free time at work.

Frame before


After.. the frame and Felt forks sandblasted


Dale (msrfan ) posted a thread where he used welded in mounts and after he answered a couple p.m. questions I decided to go that route.


I'm waiting to weld in the mounts as there are a couple more parts (brake tab, seat, tool box, and kick stand mount) that need to be either made or I haven't decided on.

The one you sold I remember... what a beautiful bike. I can see why you missed it. This one will be even better!

I am not going to be able to paint until spring and I need to make custom length cables so I spent the day today putting what I have so far together to get measurements.. The front spring bar isn't installed for mock up.

Well.....it's already good looking.

No doubt you'll have a fine machine when it's done.

Very nice.

That's a great looking bike... it would look good without paint, too.

Very nice Whizzer. I hate selling anything, but sometimes you need the room or money or both.

Thanks for the compliments, the wheels are 19in moped rims laced to a Sturmey Dymo drum in front and a Motobecane rear drum the tires are Deestone 2.25in. in front and 2.5in. On the rear they are speed rated for 120km - Quenton rebuilt the motor with all new -bearings, .050 piston, high lift cam, and the ports opened up and polished.
