    I know there is a long list of sellers of mini motors 49-66 cc but has any one here ever compiled a list of old foreign motors made or could be put on a bike
    like I believe Russia had a co. back a little while ago. (is that correct?) It would be nice to see the history of motor bikes in one nice time line or something. any thoughts?

    Several manufacturers produced a bike suitable for, or intended for mounting the Whizzer engine. The 1947 Schwinn WZ507 bike (later designated S4) was a variation of the Schwinn cantilever frame patented in 1937. ( The term "CANTILEVER" indicates that the frame has two lower top tubes, which run all the way from the head tube, cross the seat mast, and continue down to the rear drop-out.)The welds were heavier, and spokes were .105 inch diameter as opposed to the .080 inch standard gauge. The rear frame was dimpled at the left side of the rear seat stays and the chain stays to provide better belt clearance. Schwinn’s "knee action" spring fork was used. A front brake was provided to assist the standard coaster brake, and a welded on brake arm anchor point was provided at the left side of the rear chain stay, and connected to the brake arm by a strut. (Allegedly the Whizzer was capable of breaking the standard bicycle coaster brake strap, allowing the brake arm to rotate. I can personally attest that stopping the rear wheel with the coaster brake does not necessarily stop the bike, so all my bikes have front brakes.)

    In August of 1948 a smaller version, the 24 inch Schwinn S10 was offered. Both the S4 and S10 used the Schwinn S2 tubular rims. The S10 Schwinn with an "H" engine kit.

    Roadmaster also produced a Whizzer- purpose bike, the Roadmaster 226WH. It featured heavy spokes (.105 ga.) and a New Departure front brake..

    Huffman produced a bike which was intended for motorizing.

    The Martin Company produced the "Roadrunner" chassis in several versions. Suitable for mounting the Whizzer or any of several other engines, it had no bicycle pedals, and so was started by pushing, or by means of a kick or pull starter. There are several small manual motorcycle transmissions of that era which have a kick- starter built in.

    Here is a Travis Bike Motor Kit installed on a Schwinn bicycle. Power Products offered two models of the Travis Motor kit. The one shown in the picture above features the larger gas tank with the 1.5 HP motor. The other model featured a smaller gas tank that looks like a canteen. This version had a 1 HP motor. Both models has an all chrome finish as an option. The kits retailed between $69.99 to $89.99 back in 1949.

    * Weighs 17 lbs
    * 2-cycle 1.5 HP motor
    * External throttle made by Tyco Chicago
    * 150 miles/gallon
    * Aluminum cylinder with cast-iron sleeve; cast aluminum piston
    * Drop-forged crankshaft; fully counter-balanced
    * Self-contained magneto
    * Made in Chicago, Illinois by Power Products

    There is a big difference between a history/timeline and a list of every bicycle motor ever made. There is already a complete history compiled by the good folks at wikipedia. Does it list every single motor? No. Does it accurately outline the history and evolution of motorized bicycling? Absolutely.
