    Just finished my latest project. It's a mock-up of a 1950 Rollfast Hoppy bike with a Whizzer WC1 motor.

    Thanks for the compliments guys.
    Snake Bite.....a Hoppy Whizzer was never produced but the bikes and Whizzer motor kits are from the same era so it is possible that someone put the combination together back then. This is the fourth one I've built and I have another one almost done. The first three had H motors.

    Thanks for the memory!
    I didn't have a Whizzer.
    Didn't have a 'Hoppy'
    Did have a black and white Rollfast newspaper bike back in the '60's.
    That bad boy stood the test and riggors of the job.
    Wish I still had it or something 1/2 as tough.
