48 Whizzer

Here's a first year original paint Whizzer. Sorry for the poor pics.

Odd thing about the last pic:
I don't know much about Whizzers. I know at least some came on Schwinn bicycles.
I know Schwinn was the last owner of Excelsior motorcycles before pulling the plug in 1931.

The frame on this Whizzer has a Excelsior badge on the steering head.

"Experience has shown that it is preferable to use a comparatively large
motor running at a moderate speed in preference to a smaller motor running
at high speed."
