    Default Has anyone seen a Whizzer Cycletruck?

    I had a feeling this was going to be a hard buger. The catalogs from Schwinn indicated that there was such animal, but it has not been seen yet.

    Cool Whizzer 300 Series

    Here's a 300 series Whizzer motor on a Roadmaster version of a Cycletruck, the "bowed" upper bar made putting the whizzer motor on easier!

    Looking at Nates Whizzer cycletruck, I did not see extra metal bracing from the factory. I just have one on layaway and will be picking up soon. That does have extra bracing on the frame, not because it was broken. Thanks for the replys.

    I want to see the head badge. Just learned that the official name of this bike is power cycle truck. Found this blurry picture and I wonder if some of these came with their own badge

    Default I made that headbadge...

    I made both badges in the previous post.

    The Power Cycle truck did NOT come with a special badge, not even a Cycletruck badge.
    From what I could gather, they used the 'Planes & trains' badge.

    This is a picture of my Power Cycle Truck REPLICA. Based on an original Cycle truck:
