Schwinn Phantom/Whizzer BUZZ

Discussion in 'Photos & Bicycle Builds' started by Zomby Builder, Aug 14, 2007.

  1. Here is my 68 Phantom. I wished it had more low end torque. It is the only Whizzer I own. Any Whizzes out thyrere ?????? I bought this bike 90% of what you see here. Did some mods, it goes about 43 mph level ground. I want to cruise up 6% grades with no prob. This set up won't get there. More torque please.......I don't care if it only goes 30 mph.....

    nice lookin' whizzer ! :D
    I like the dual pipes :cool:
     
  3. Bigger belt ring should do it.
    And by the way that front pulley looks,it looks like it could get smaller,but unsure cause your cover is covering it. Wait. There it is. Dude. That front pulley is HUGE!

    I was hoping somebody would put that into perspective.... The belt ring on the wheel is at the limit for clearance. A smaller pulley might just do the evil deed. Can I buy one? Or is this another fab (&%&@$$$)
     
  5. Sweet ride:D

    Well spotted LF. I was wondering why as these babies have a 150cc motor don't they?

  8. Whizz performance

    Engine is nice- starts easy runs very smooth sounds great. Not enough low end torque & belt squeeeeeels when stopped with the clutch in with motor running.

    Repost (or move thread) to the Heritage forum, you'll get the help you need in there, as there are a few of us whizzer folks in there...

    If you want more power, consider upgrading to the NE cylinder kit. A belt idler kit is also available to make the belts & clutch work better on the manual clutch model.

    I keep a large parts inventory of both vintage and new generation Whizzer parts in stock. I currently have 2 NE cylinder kits in stock , however one of the kits is the last of the rare early versions with the 26 MM carburetor [same price]. The kit includes the cylinder, head, piston, rings, wrist pin, compression cover, new oil breather system, carburetor, intake spacers, NE exhaust manifold, & gaskets. The NE cylinder has a larger intake valve, bigger fins for cooling, and much better port designs than the earlier WC-1 cylinders. My kits are different than other kits because I install a special oil deflector to control the oil breather at higher RPMs. Another way to add extra power to the motor is available by using a high lift camshaft & mushroom lifters [yes I have them in stock].
