Description:

First produced in 1939, the Whizzer bicycle engine was built by Breene-Taylor engineering, an airplane part manufacturer based out of Los Angeles. Three years later, the engine production was sold off and it continued on until the mid 60’s. There is no “standard” Whizzer. They were simply engine kits sold so that consumers could make motorized bicycles. This is an original example of a Whizzer engine on a Schwinn bicycle.

Interestingly enough, the Whizzer was the only vehicle that you could buy brand new during World War II – and that was only because the company had to lobby the US Government for permission. Their argument: That the Whizzer was an excellent transportation option for government employees (especially in defense) to commute to work.

This specific Schwinn Whizzer is probably a Model H that was then retrofitted for Newspaper Delivery. The Model H kit retailed for $97.55. Although Cleveland Welding originally built a bike specifically for the Whizzer in ’47, after a patent conflict, Whizzer partnered with Schwinn.

Sold on a Bill of Sale.
