That's "Straight PIPE" from the 192cc side valve 4 striker single.



You must have had the zoomerang twice pipe option if you had two.

Or be held together with bailing wire? Oh the list can just go on and on.

Personally, I'm not sure it's such a good idea to use stamps that will be half missing by the time they get to their destination.

You are right. It had just one "pipe". So soon they forget - and it was only back in 1949, too. I rode it up the Arroyo Seca Parkway with my friend who was "rich" and had a Motobecane. The Parkway was the first freeway in the US, and is now called the Pasadena Freeway. I think the Whizzer ran 35mph, which was way too fast for the rear wheel bicycle brake.

Re: Whizzer year

Love suicide shift. Always use to "blip" the throttle when I hit neutral and pull a double-clutch for effect.

Motorized bicycles are way cool. You can't pry me off mine. Something about being able to pull the clutch in, shut off the motor and ride on the sidewalk when traffic sucks is magical.

Shoot me an email and I'll send you back a pick of my "Whizzer".

Not that Whizzer, the one that runs on gas, not beer.

Re: I'll Wait for the Riceburner Stamps

Yes, but will you out in the garage staring at them at 1 am?

Re: I'll Wait for the Riceburner Stamps

I've sure been out there cursing at them at 1 AM.
