I’ve been trying to get back into Whizzers for awhile now and the right opportunity came up... It doesn’t run and needs some adjustments but should be a fun project. I already ordered some black walls - wasn’t into the whitewalls...

Does anyone know where I can get a Whizzer crackset arm? I heard it’s different from the regular schwinn one...

does yours hit? it looks like yours was modified already.
also a Echo tube should be run with the aluminum manifold...they give some, the cast one might break.

Mine is all bent up and rubs on the side of the engine... I think it might just be easier to just find a new one rather than mess with this one. Would a aluminum manifold still be original?

well.... no, only for a J engine, but H's wouldn't have the whizzer gripped controls, or the echo tube either. I may have an extra aluminum manifold.
there are aftermarket wide cranks, I'll see if I still have one they come in 24" and 26" sizes.

An aluminum manifold and a crank for a 26” would be sweet!

I didn’t like the front spring on the seat - I think it looks way better without it...

Nice that you got that!! Hope the price was fair. I will be getting that WZ from NYC that you had shown me this week. Thanks again for showing me the CL ad!
I will hunt I might have a crank for you if you just pay shipping . If bricycle doesn’t turn one up. I need a og drip stand and HC head for my J motor and I’ll be set!!

For a bike that dosen't run, it sure looks pretty sweet!

I was just at a fellows house yesterday buyin an old railroad sign, we got to talking and he showed me his Motorcycle collection....WOW! He had 6 or 7 Bikes in his living room (pan heads, flat heads a few old BMW's) including an old Cushman and a Wizzer, all OG (I think he said 49). Wouldn't let me take photos and said it was not for sale - yet! In his basement he had three trikes (Honda, 60's HD Police Trike and a Sprotster) and a Cushman he was fixing.

The downstairs Cushman was a low end version without sheetmetal (for sale $800.00) while the upstairs version had everything but was not for sale.

I asked him to put my name on both the Wizzer and upstairs Cushman.....we'll see!

I did tell him about our site as he has an old (complete) girls light weight Raleigh with very cool brake levers. Great complete bike...Super nice guy, I hope he joins the site and puts it up for sale....

Thanks Eric, I’m happy I picked this one up. I forgot how cool Whizzers are and it’s great being back in the hobby! I’m glad that the one in NYC work out for you - looks like the perfect donor bike...

Fortunately Joe Cargola hooked me up with a freshly chromed double bent crank - thanks for looking though!

Dang Bart, it sounds like you found the jackpot! It’s cool to hear that people still collect these old things... Hopefully that guy joins and posts some photos.

It looks like mine is going to need a bunch more work, but working on these is pretty fun!

Yeah, wish I could have got photos but he was a fairly private guy, his girlfriend was a bit surprised he was letting me see them. His Wizzer was cool but no where near as nice as yours!
What does the "average" late 40's early 50's Wizzer go for?

I’d say a nice running Whizzer is around $1500-$2K and a restored is $3K-$3500...

tell me you didn't dye the saddle....
I just put some leather paint on it to see what it would look like black... It needs to be recovered anyway - it’s all torn up. Just wanted to test the color.

It wasn’t original, I had been recovered a few years ago. If it was original I would have definitely kept it that way...
