I went to the Portland Oregon Hot Rod Show today and saw this old timey truck with an unusual cargo in the back:


Anyone recognize it?

Actually, it's a NEW Whizzer.

As XJ's history page states, the old Whizzer Motorbike Company was resurrected in 1998 to build these retro-looking rides for people who now desired that old nostalgic look.


Here's the very bike sitting in the back of that truck. It appears the show truck guys added a bulb horn on the handlebars, a chrome cargo rack on the back, changed out the black seat and hand grips for tan-colored items and added matching tan saddlebags. The turn signals are either a company option or a customer modification.


Other than those items it's identical to this bike:

P.S....got any more photos of that truck the bike is sitting upon? It looks interesting from the little tidbits I CAN see...

Nope, I only took the two photos. The truck was really nice though and unusual.

Here's the Show's photos to look at. Just click on the one you want to see bigger:

I didn't see the truck there yet. Perhaps later on this weekend it will show up. These photos were taken before the show opened to the public as there is no one looking at other's cars, but only the owners of the show cars getting them ready for the opening.

Another Vehicle at the show was this:

This is a 1959 Dodge Short Bus, with Ford Triton V10, and 6 speed Auto Trans.

That little bus would make for a great motorhome.

The signs on the other side said it would make an awesome party bus!
