at age 13, in Berwyn, Illinois. Don Dickey

In January 2002 Blaine and Sam Johnson purchased this
1982 Truckster at a Dairy in Glendale AZ. for $200
And it run's.
I picked this up awhile ago in Bradenton, Florida. Looks like one of those post-war units made by small shops. It is electric and powered by two 12 volt deep cycle batteries. Big fat motor that belt drives a reduction jackshaft that looks very similar to the ones that used to be on powered reel mowers. Final drive is bicycle chain to the right rear wheel. Frame is all square steel tubing brazed together like an early formula car. Brakes are via pedal that actuates twin arms that drag on the back tires. Any idea who made this?? No markings anywhere. It is incredibly stable and smooth riding despite the tiny pneumatic tire up front.

The Blue Streak got a modified brake. Also I did away with the v-belt friction brake. It burned through about every 10 stops. Kind of hairy and scary! Got hills here in Oregon!
installed a 3mm disk onto the jack shaft and attached a front brake assembly and
caliper off a Honda CBR 600. Works like a charm and lowers the fear factor a
I am also including a recent picture of the Scooter Gang that has been terrorizing the neighborhood. I'm the guy 2nd from the right. Tom Cade
couple of photos of my version of the Smith Motor Wheel, using the
drawings on the A.O. Smith website. My version is accurate to their
dimensions (I have conjectured that people were smaller 75 years ago), and
I made two other changes. I used a bicycle motor (Zipper) to power the
5th wheel, and I angled the kingpins to provide better on-center steering.
Building it was a lot of fun.
Your website is a great resource, both for research and inspiration.

My 1999 Reproduction Whizzer.
It has a 2007 NE5 engine, It will run 50 mph if the belts are nice and tight.
As you can see there are several modifications.
