I have listed this before and there was a lot of interest but it did not sell. Offered is this NOS Whizzer Kit New In The Box # 352610. I believe this kit dates to 1950 or 1951. This is a genuine vintage NOS kit not one of the recent remakes.I almost never use the word rare in my auctions but I think the word is justified here, how many of these could still be around? What is most interesting about this kit is that everything is in the box as it was packed at the factory. I was the first person to open this box and the items have been removed only once for the pictures and carefully replaced in the box as they were packed. Not all of the items have been removed or photographed. Many of the items were removed as a group so as to not disturb their placement.
The little paper hardware bags have never been opened. I can not say with certainty that this is complete since I have not seen all of the parts. There is a very little spider webbing on the tank and as you can see in the picture some discolorization/corrosion on the motor mounts and pulley.
I did turn the engine to be sure it was free and it is. The box was not opened real neatly but when closed you do not see this.Standard Cycle was a long time bicycle wholesaler in Chicago. I bought this from the son of a couple who owned a news agency. The son found it when he was cleaning out his parents house and believes this kit was left from his parent's news agency. He said the top newspaper carrier every year received a Whizzer kit as an award.
This belongs in your museum! It has been in my bedroom closet for the last 30+ years.
