Riding a '38 Autocycle Deluxe
Pulled out this Colson whizzer that I built 25-30 yrs ago to get ready to sell ( only putting air in the tires and wipe it down). I showed it at a couple of the last Whizz-ins in the 90's and never rode or even started it ( I had a couple of riders I still have ) and ended up stored in my moms garage for 20 yrs then mine for the rest. Couple of small things I didn't finish, I never figured out how to secure the front fender in the Whizzer springer fork, it had no mounting at the top where it would usually screw into the fork so it can move forward or back, didn't want a ugly bracket hanging down so was going to fabricate something to the sides of the fender, the other thing was how much travel do these forks have because I only have about a inch clearance to where I put the brake arm clamp. another thing I'm kinda bummed about now but didn't even think about it way back then, I repainted a NOS maroon Whizzer springer fork ( I still have the box somewhere ), why didn't I just aint a used one, I guess it was easier, no bodywork or chrome to do, also last pic was my inspiration for the paint job, my OG 41 Colson camelback.
