If you’re jazzed by vintage scooters, the Whizzer Motorized Schwinn is for you!

In 1939, Breene-Taylor Engineering Corporation, a maker of aircraft parts, marketed the Whizzer scooter kit. Sold for $54.95, the kit featured an air-cooled, four-cycle engine designed to power a bicycle. They topped out at about 20 miles per hour.

The first generation of Whizzers launched in 1939 was called the Model D Bicycle Motor. It sold only 1000 units. The next version, the Model E Bicycle Motor, offered a few more features and sold approximately 1500 units.

In 1943, new ownership partnered with the US government to develop motorcycles for the US Army.

Our 1949 Whizzer Motorized Schwinn Sportsman features a 4-cylinder 50cc engine, automatic clutch and belt drive with front suspension. The brilliant red frame (#S313429) includes a front light and brown leather seat. It has been completely restored with authentic and correct parts.

We’ve priced this unique bike at $2,777.
