    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.

    The square oring in the caliper gets crap under it and it causes the piston to lock up. Just get the piston out, pry the seal out and clean the crap out. You can probably stilll use the seal over again. Just be careful not to scratch the bore or piston. Relube with brake fluid before reassembly.

    I used a product called metal mend over window screen to patch a header collector and it worked great but that was not visable, Maybe you can wrap the hole with stainless sheeting then use some cloth wrap over it.

    Great scoop, always wanted a 400f. Had a 1977 750f2 for 33 years. Wish I still had it.

    Good luck.

    Beautiful bike. The previous owner did the fiberglass and paint and is clearly talented. BTW, it's for sale. I'll put an ad in the flea market soon.

    Just cracked 10,000 miles on a frame-up restoration in 2008. It's a perfect runner...1st kick starter even after extended periods sleeping in the garage.

    Oh, did I mention it's "Faster than a Speeding Ticket"? :wink:

    Just brought this home today and I'm pinching myself that I feel so lucky...
    About 10 years ago, I had a '74 R90S for a few years. It had been repainted solid black, and had Lester wheels, and I can't for the life of me remember now why I got rid of it but I've always regretted the decision. Now, fortunately, I've gotten a second chance- and to find one this nice (and in basically my back yard) and along with that, to have my long-suffering wife give me the OK- well, it's pretty cool.
    Speaking of cool- the ride home (34 degrees) featured strong winds and snow showers. Still, I couldn't wipe the smile off my face.
    It's going to be a long winter.

    My buddy Scott pulled to the side of the road to check out this old bike that was being parked on the side for trash pickup by owner who bought it new in 1965. He was too old to ride anymore, and figured the bike was too... after all, it still had the original tires...
    New gas, oil and battery, and she fires right up and will do 60 down to the local Stewarts!:freaky
