    I just sold this Whizzer H on a Roadmaster to my good friend Dan. He's been wanting one ever since he road one of mine a few years ago. I originally built this one with my oldest brother who past away 4 years ago. It needs a little crank work so I gave him a deal he couldn't pass up. Now I hope he starts his own thread on the repair and customization.

    Not really, it needs some crankshaft work. He won't go without something to ride because he has a Briggs bike we built years ago.

    Thanks SB. Looks like I'll be doing the posting because Dan has no Computer. Still watching your amazing build.

    Thanks baird. Yeah, I need to thin out a little. I think you're right about Dan. He'll have it going in no time.

    Thanks scotto. Dan's my silent partner. Actually he's pretty outspoken but has no computer. I'll get him on this thread as the tune up progresses.

    Yeah Dennis, it was that way when I was a kid. Anybody with a go kart or minibike was very popular. They always needed to be worked on, so the garage was a hangout for us kids looking for a ride. There's plenty of young ones in my neighborhood, but I guess they would rather play on their computers. Sad state of affairs when a boy or girl grows up without knowing what end of a screwdriver to hold.

    Dan's Whizzer is coming over today for final tune and ride. Hope to have a Whizzer day at Donut Derelicts soon. My Roadmaster cycletruck is next in line to get on the road.

    Well we had a few problems but got'er running pretty good. Had to overhaul the gas cap to stop leaks, adjust the clutch cover to release properly and fool with the carb a little. Overall Dan's real happy the way it rides and looks.

    Still need to put the Whizzer decals on the tank and polish the front sprocket a bit.

    And with a southern California riding climate to boot? Heaven.

    Did you other rustbelters notice? They've still got 1970 Beetles and 1967 (or so) Ford 100 pickup trucks.

    We just don't see stuff like that anymore.
