Some nice Whizzer specimens.
Saw this very unusual and sophisticated example of craftsmanship based upon a modified Whizzer engine. It was in a general display of Whizzers, as a special display group, at a '40 Ford car meet last June. The man who built it stated that it weighed 68 lbs., that the engine was significantly modified to produce a measured (approximately) 10 HP, and that the achievable top speed was in the region of 70 MPH.If you look carefully at the pictures, you'll conclude that every part of the machine is special - exotic lightweight materials used everywhere, a lot of CNC machining, with overall design and construction efforts well above the original-type Whizzer/bicycle examples we've all been accustomed to seeing. As to the stated weight, I observed the man simply lift the entire machine and easily place it in the bed of a pickup - by himself - with no particular effort at all.
