The "kindalikeawhizzer" build is as close as I will come even though the engine is Tecumseh rather than Briggs... close enough though in size, displacement (199CC) and horsepower (also 5 hsp) to be a close relative. Many thanks to you for sharing your creative energy with the rest of us.

Chris's bike is already a winner even without detailing and paint. I bet he's happy...

Thanks sb, I really like your variety of bikes. Different motors and drive systems you utilize give us ideas we may not have on our own. Not to mention creative side cars and trailers. I thank you for all your input.

Hi Curt. The clutch on this one is a copy of the 3rd Millenium made for late Whizzers made from a Max Torque belt drive unit. The front hub is a dirt bike brake and the rear is moped. The rims are just some I had laying around.

Decided to throw some paint on the bike so it would look decent for the semi-final assembly. I made an aluminum flywheel cover to keep Chris' leg out of what's left of the cooling fins.










I found an old Schwinn badge.



Fitted a return spring to the compression release so I don't totally rely on the valve spring.

And my grandson, Greg, made some stainless flanges for the intake and exhaust tubes and carb.

Greg's taking the bike to show Chris what we've been doing to the bike, so I mocked up the pedal crank assembly and threw on some grips and seat.
