I guess "rare" and "unusual" are relative terms!

Its more of a moped/peddle bike, but I have a 1948 whizzer that got passed on to me.

Pretty neat old bike, only has 18 original miles on it, but sat in a wet shed for quite a few years.

30 years ago I went to a garage sale. As I was walking up the driveway a guy was wheeling out what looked to be a pristine Whizzer. As he was going by I asked what he paid for it. $20 he said. When I'm not kicking myself for not being just a bit earlier to the sale I tell myself he was just BSing me on the price.

Not outrageously rare or unusual - but you don't see many of them around just the same

It's eminently usable, and both looks and rides as if it were newer than its 19 years. I've always been a fan of the technology but it took 17 years for one to come along within my budget.

I wasn't going to bother posting in this thread, but didn't realize so few Ducati E900 Elephants were sold here, so I guess I did have a rare bike.
I do ride a Ural now, at around 1000 sold a year worldwide they are not common, but not really rare, and its predecessors were built by the millions.

It is the 12th one built, completely original. I've owned it 16 years and was very lucky to find it in the condition it's in.

I've ridden a Whizzer amny times.
It was my dad's, he bought it new when he was 14 and I rode it when I was around 12. Restoring it became a project that he and I worked at together in our spare time until my parents got divorced and he left with it. I was talking to him a few years ago and asking him whatever happened to the Whizzer and a few other things I remember fondly growing up (including a numbers matching 9mm German Luger that I was in love with). He told me that he got mad after the divorce and just liquidated everything. What a shame, I hope whoever got the Whizzer finished the resto and is enjoying it.

My first ride was a R100s in this paint. What a beautiful bike!
