That's a great looking bike. The serial number suggests 1950 since it's stamped under the BB. I don't think it rolled out of the factory this way. If it were my bike, I'd get it running and preserve it. Maybe find a better saddle; parts for the bicycle itself are not that difficult to find. As for the motor, I'm not too sure.

The bike was used by a doctor for house calls in rural Southern Maine or N.H. I think the guys set it up to be utilized as his primary transportation. I do think that everything was purchased and put together at the same time. Just a guess since I have no idea :)

By preserve do you mean do a rust-oration? Leave it as is, but get it in proper running order. Yeah, the motor is the big question for me.

Thanks for the input.

Motor (with brass dip stick) would make it an early H model, unless it was added later. Twist grips are off a later model J or bought and added later. Serial No. in on other side of engine on drain plug area to left of timing marks. :D I have a list of over 750 Whizzer Serial no's.

Yes sir! WZ frame.
Fyi, these had a 48 tooth(24 tooth skip)front sprocket (instead of 52/26), to be easier to pedal while starting the mill. (and the added weight)
