MOTORIZED BICYCLES:   No More Flat Tubes posted by: Mike Schneider on 7/18/2007 at 3:20:18 PM
Is anyone interested in solid tubes?

We have been working with a solid for our front wheel friction drive TAS Spitz, Bike Bug and Sears Free Spirit Motorized bikes.

These tubes are great - never have to fix a flat or worry about a blow out.

MOTORIZED BICYCLES:   Marman 1948 posted by: Doug on 5/20/2007 at 6:23:27 PM
I hate to think about this but I may have to sell my 1948 Marman. I have the original title to it and the belt guard that is not in the picture. I have been told that the value was around $2000 without the belt guard but I do have that. If anyone is serious about this please email me. I have another project that needs some funds and this would be the only way to get it. I will know for sure in about a week if I need to sell it or if I get a very fair offer it might be sold anyway.
Thanks,
Doug

MOTORIZED BICYCLES:   whizzer engine displacement 1951 posted by: dave on 5/9/2007 at 1:16:04 PM
I had a 1951 Whizzer motorbike when I was a kid, built on a Schwinn frame with 26" wheels. It had magneto lights, a front brake that didn't work, and two tailpipes: one flexible chrome and another louder pipe that was long, solid and chrome plated. What was its engine displacement? Were all Whizzers 49cc or less? I seem to remember it could generate 3 HP.

There's a Monark Supertwin for sale on e-bay right now. I found it under Monark in the general catagorie. Not a bad price, I paid more than that for one in worse condition and missing more parts.

MOTORIZED BICYCLES:   Whizzer Schwinn? posted by: Glenn on 4/24/2007 at 9:12:22 AM
Please help! I'm trying to find out info on a Schwinn motorized bicycle. The frame plate in front says Arnold Schwinn & co Chicago. Above it says Henderson with a propeller. The bike has a 1950 license plate on it so I'm guessing it is at least that old. Was told it might be a 39. Where is the frame serial #? Has fold down rear stand and side stand. Springer front end with Schwinn brake. 26" Gillette special service tires. Bendix rear brake. Twin "thumb" throttle controls. Messinger seat. Stewart Warner speedometer. On the left side the motor has 1/m H82791. The bottom of the cylinder has 2204W cast into it. On the right side of the motor it has a round plate that says Patented USA Torrington M-12101-x Flex exhaust pipe, Tillotson carb.
I don't know enough about these kits but hope I have provided enough information to you. Thanks in advance,

The H82791 Whizzer engine puts it at 1946. H engines were used on 46 / 47 and early 48 models. There are serial number charts on this site for the Schwinn bike.

          RE:MOTORIZED BICYCLES: Whizzer Schwinn? posted by Larry Wlos on 5/1/2007 at 6:59:32 PM
Serial number should be under bottom bracket , or on left rear axle drop out. I think you have aolder bike so I would look under the bike where the pedal crank is.I can give you date of manufacture with this number.
