I got bored, dug around the boxes and put some things together....

New motor kit...
Repop Phantom...
Some cool accessories and an imagination....

Its a smooth as a brand new Cadillac, a half kick and it starts so nicely... high compression head, it's fast.

The whole motor kit was removed from a repop Whizzer minus 90% of the wiring.
I've got 5 original Whizzers, all require tinkering of some sort before a each ride... it's a Whizzer. But with the new motor it's a totally different feel of darn near a new car... a half rotation start, pull up the kick stand, you dont even have to pedal to take off it's thats smooth.
I'm glad you like it, it was fun to build and may do another some day.

You can barely see the CDI unit underneath the front of the tank.

- I bought a repop Whizzer locally (with just a few miles on it) and pulled everything off I wanted then sold the frame/ fork etc. Using original mounts etc it went back on a bike, the only thing I couldn't do was convert the throttle to original...
- The belt touches the frame about the thickness of a piece of paper, nothing to worry about.
- I built a frame straightener that can also crimp frames for belt clearances, no matter the manufacturer. I used to sell them on eBay (crimped Whizzer frames) by the pound 2000-2008.
- the bike turned out too smooth to get rid of, plus I have too much fun telling people (when asked) its a 21st century/ zero hassle and one of the fastest Whizzers in the pack.

Looks Awesome!! I'll bet with that high compression head it does about 40+ m.p.h. Have fun and Ride On. Razin.

My dad has a 2005 NE5 Whizzer (bought it for $350) and after a little grinding & polishing of a restrictor plate in the carb it'll do like 50mph on a universal moped speedometer. Other than the mountain bike tires that came on the bike it's a blast in the ass to ride!!! I want to do what you have done with a vintage bike but Pops won't sell me the Whizzer so it's jus' sitting buried in the corner of the garage :( . I may put a 49cc Motori Minarelli moped motor on 1 Some Day with a 80cc bore kit ;)

Any motor on a bicycle is cool dude, I'm happy to hear your juices are stirring to put something together. Like the man said once, "I didnt build this for YOUR approval..."
Good luck, keep us posted with pictures :)

Great idea and super results! I wonder why nobody has done that before.
I sorta did with an NE5 kit and help from a few locals.
Jim Scott who supplied all the parts to assemble this bike.
Keith Jones who assembled the Whizzer parts on the bike and did the paint and striping.
And Bill Green, who got rid of all the cheap Asian parts, and replaced them with good ol' USA parts and made it fast.

Not to step on your thread too much here Jim, just answering the question.
and not the first time I've posted these photos.

Yes I second output comment on the new whizzers motors ! I have over 10k mi on one of the earlier NE5 motors . Built like yours with an old schwinn . So much fun . And good electric output for lights . Can’t go wrong . I just got a kit complete motor wiring and clutch form100$ can’t wait to start another build . Og ones are nice. But definitely take more tinkering!
