Back to the top with my 2007 Whizzer NE5 just after I bought in December 2013. Been doing some work on it to bring it up to speed and look to get it on the road early spring.

Vintage Maroon, autoclutch, turn signals, mirrors, and a decent amount of corrosion/rust appear to be the key features :D

Seriously, all the chrome (including the vacuum plated plastic pieces) have some form of rust/corrosion on them. While doing the engine upgrades I am also trying to clean everything up. Aluminum foil works amazingly well to remove rust off chrome!

This is my derelict.......based on a Westfield frame
Wow Ken that's a beauty. Looks like a Roadmaster front fork to my eye. I see you are in Severna Park... I picked my bike up from a seller in Germantown; I live in northern VA. Maybe in the spring we can ride? Any decent Roads up there? There's another guy on here that is building up a motorbike that lives about ten miles from me; maybe we all get together. Miles of country roads out my back door.

Hi Ed,
You're just down a few country roads aren't you? yeah, Ive heard she might be a Roadmaster. The badge says Westfield Viking. So, according to my sleuthing, she's a for-runner of a Columbian. I just picked her up this past week. I've been lusting after her for about 3 months. Finally closed the deal about 3 weeks ago. I got a bunch of parts with the deal including an 1946 original Whizzer owner's manual. Where in VA do you hail from?
BTW, your ride is a beaut!

Ken,
I'd one day love to own a vintage Whizzer like you have. I decided to cut my teeth on a new whizzer, they are still available and relatively cheap.

Anyway, I'm in Fauquier County so miles of country roads. Since I just bought mine I have not yet taken it out on the road.

Do you have to register in MD? Mine still has MD motorcycle plates on it.

Hey guys,

Buzz down to the Outer Banks and we can all go riding [I have hundreds of miles of country roads to ride on].

Bike sure looks like a "Cleveland Welding" bike to me. Most common version is the "Roadmaster" brand. Cleveland Welding, like Schwinn, made bikes for stores with their own badge [brand], like Western Auto, Firestone, Sears, etc.

Have fun,

Have lots of Whizzer [over 20], but will start with one of my favorites. 1950 Whizzer Pacemaker. 100% original. Won "Best Restored" senior division Portland, IN 2009. It also won first place "Best Restored" in the junior division, but don't remember the year.

Original "300" motor with German needle bearing crankshaft, Hi Compression head, tall oil breather, Carter carburetor, embossed tank, trigger compression release, Hall generator and headlight, Whizzer tail light, Whizzer model 270 automatic clutch, 24" wide rims [Schwinn double nurled], 5" Whizzer rear brake hub, Pacemaker rear stand, Pacemaker chain guard, Pacemaker front forks, Pacemaker front & rear fenders, and painted 1950 Whizzer red [maroon].

This bike is not only a show winner [over 25 first place wins], it is a rider!

Several on this forum have ridden this bike at various shows.

Will post additional Whizzers in the future.

Have fun,

Howzit everyone, I go by the name Wrench. This is my NE5 2005 I've had her for over 13 years I have put over 35,000 miles on her. Here are some pictures I took in March 2018 and Sept 2018 I thought it was COOL when all the numbers on the spedo lined up. She has many upgrades and Mods. Too many to talk about right now . I always read all the Whizzer Forum sites out there But this year is the first time I've ever said anything. I've got more to share and maybe one or two Mods ya all have never seen .Talk with ya all later.

Aloha Wrench

I ran out of space for pictures on the last post Here are some more
1) White Industries made in USA free sprocket
2) Passing lamps I put in 20w bulbs so the electrical system could handle it
3)Wheel lights helps keep me from being run over at night and they change 6 different colors.
4)Harley gas cap
5)Harley visor and retro Whizzer badge
6)spedo to date Nov. 12 2018
7,8,9 ) I never liked the way the kickstand made the bike set always on the rear tire. So I cut off the bottom U portion of the kickstand and Tig welded it back on at a different angle a few degrees from plumb to the rear of the bike. Now when I put the kickstand down the bike rests on the front tire I also replaced the rubber with a thicker stronger rubber.
I've still got alot more Mods to share, Maybe I'll start a new tread or find the right one to post some more info.
Well I'll start by saying I've done all the basic Mods to the engine, mushroom lifters, crank end play shim(spacer) Changed all bearings to Nachi bearings,I run the NE Cast Iron Westman Cyl. I shave all my Cyl heads way to the max. Now High compression,Must burn high octane fuel, Make my own copper head gaskets, 22mm KieHin carb, Wheels are Worksman Drum brakes front and rear ,New larger muffler with high flow baffle. These are just the basic upgrades and Mods. I'll talk more about some more Interesting ones later
OH yea My bike goes down the road at a steady 40mph with a slight down hill 45mph now add a tail wind I see the spedo hit 50mph all the time. Shes not a race bike, Just a cruiser I built the motor to stay under 7,000 rpm, Parts last alot longer.
ALOHA Wrench
