    1999 Whizzer tension release

    I recently bought a 1999 Whizzer and spent the weekend getting it running, the issue is I don't fully understand the tension release/clutch (the leaver on the left). I am able to start the bike just fine but pulling that lever so that I can set the bike down without it launching off takes a ton...

    autoclutch to coaster brake?

    I think I remember reading somewhere that a Whizzer that uses an autoclutch cannot also use a coaster rear brake? Or is it a manual clutch bike cannot use a drum brake? I'm not sure either statement makes any sense, or why either would be true? Maybe something to do with starting the bike...

    Anyone successfully mount a HT bicycle engine or Huasheng to a Whizzer frame?

    Was wondering if anyone on here, has restored, fixed up, freshly painted or powder coated any kind of Whizzer frame? I'm sure it's been done, I just haven't seen anything. Either a 2-stroke Ht kit, or the 4-stroke huasheng. Let me know!
