    I am no Whizzer expert, but I have never heard of this. Here are some quotes from the listing:

    So- is this guy realistic at over $3500?????

    ...and the bags don't look right. A little Googling has shown other "Service Pick Ups", but all with rectangular metal boxes like in the ad in the eBay listing. Could these be original? Like I said, I don't know, but $2500 for essentially a frame may be worth it, but with something rare, the les original it is, the less value.

    As with anything for sale, it is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it. The Whizzer service pickup is probably the most rare of any. I have only seen a couple. The bags on it are not original. They are like the ones in the ad. The asking price may seem a little high but is probably reasonable due to the rarity of it.

    Hi everyone,

    The Whizzer service pickup was a very limited model and rumors have approx 6 produced.

    They are easily spotted by the welded bracket for the tool boxes [similar to saddle bags].

    The service pickup was designed for automotive dealerships and didn't catch on.

    There is a Whizzer more rare than the service pickup and was a proto-type 20" based on the "stingray" bike, and as far as I know was never put into production.

    Have fun,

    I have read about a 2 speed transmission on the Service Pick Up. Were those used an other models?

    Anyone know where I can see a picture of the innards of that transmission?

    Hi Houghmade,

    The 2 speed Bi-Matic was offered on the Sportsman [20" Kickstart motor], but was soon discontinued because of high failure rates. Today the Bi-Matic is being upgraded & rebuilt by a friend of mine [Terry McAllister] in IL. The original problem centered around the bearings and the seals. Better bearings and better seals are available today to aid in the upgrade process.

    I have ridden several Whizzers with the Bi-Matic [including Terry's OHV Whizzer] and they really work nice. You simply let off the throttle and it shifts, and best I remember it can be shifted at approx 15 MPH. I have the original pictures [drawings] of the BI-Matic in my Service manaul, but it isn't high quality printing [it is a copy of the original manual].

    The average cost of the vintage unit is around $750.00.

    Have fun,

    Terry modifies them to fit the new edition motors. I don't know if he has any for sale but you can contact him at theboopsters1750@sbcglobal.net

    You should also suscribe to the Whizzer Newsletter when you contact him.

    Have fun,
