    OK so I am getting older and have wanted one for years. I was wondering about the reproductions and how good they are. There are a few for sale locally making them very interesting.
    I would rather have an original but the are pricey and I have a few other toys that are hungry.

    by the way how about a repop Schwinn Black Phantom with a Chinese engine? I would much rather have a Whizzer engine but there is one of these for sale close by as well. Sacrilegious?

    It is personal preference. Most agree that Whizzers from the 50's and 60's were better built. Contemporary Whizzers can be modified to be reliable.
