Will a vintage Whizzer engine fit in an unmodified Worksman INB (Newsboy) frame? Thanks

Whizzers often fit tight frames by using a low fin head and welded mounts, but they're so tilted that the carb is not level, the echo pipe sticks way up in back and it looks way crooked. Not a good idea. There's plenty of nice heavy duty frames that it will fit comfortably into and look great. I have 2 in Schwinn DX frames and 1 in a Roadmaster. Like Whizzerbug says, you can't beat a Schwinn cantilever frame for the easiest fit.

Pretty obvious I prefer welded in mounts but here's Chip Foose with his Cantilever frame and clamp in motor. I overhauled his engine and cleaned up the older restoration.

I'd like to stay with the straight bar for appearance. So discount the Worksman, my two remaining choices are the Schwinn and CWC frames. Thanks, Joe

If you already have a Worksman bike you should measure it and make sure if the Whizzer motor will fit or not. The process is illustrated in section 1 page 1 of the installation manual. Mine is a copy of a copy and the dimensions aren't very clear, but you can get the idea. Maybe another member can fill in the exact numbers.

No, don't have the worksman frame. I contemplated buying a complete worksman bike. It already has the heavy duty wheels. I like the looks of the flat bar for what I'm planning on building. I may look at the Sportsman (Worksman) loop frame as well. Thanks
