    I have been working on my Whizzer for about six weeks now.
    This is a Generation 2 reproduction of the 49 Schwinn Phantom, sporting an NE-5.

    I purchased it from a guy in Central California, dragged it back to Palm Springs, took it apart and put it back together. Most of what I did were general tweaks to get it running and for a general knowledge of what I was riding. I really want to thank everyone here for the invaluable information and especially to Quenton who is one of the most gracious gentlemen and just a wealth of Whizzer and general engineering knowledge. There is no way to put a price on the information he and others have shared here to help me make it all work. THANK YOU.

    Here are a few photos I took yesterday.

    Very cool! I dig the pinstripes on the tank, and the color & chrome combo look excellent together.

    Yes this is my first Whizzer. I have spent some time building 2 stroke bikes but it seems whence you go Whizzer you can't go back. Thanks for the comment.
