    Heads up on this one....beautiful looking rear brake but not Whizzer or bicycle
    this is the Schwinn Town and Country Tandem brake...the flanges are farther
    apart and the cluster is also wider making it suitable for mounting on the
    wider Tandem drop outs but unfortunately not bicycle or whizzer. unless
    you spread the frame

    I had it on my 1948 whizzer for years. And worked very well!! With no need for any change. Frame was a little bit expanded, but with the right tool works perfect. Thanks for the explanation.
