Jack Kowal on his "46" Whizzer

In 1946 after getting out of the navy my father moved to Westfield Mass. Cars were difficult to find after the war and a Whizzer Moter Kit was the choice for transportation. This was my father on that bike in 46. That same year he went to work for Westfield Mfg. Co. the maker of Columbia Bicycles. During his emloyment there the now famous spring fork was being developed and the Whizzer kit that Dad rode to work every day seemed to fit the bill for testing it. The factory purchased a motor kit of their own and mounted it on a bike equiped with the new fork. My father was then given the job of "test riding" around the block. This provided little excitement and he soon was riding all over Western Mass. The green bike is the third his original Whizzer Kit has been on and has been resored several times. This anniversary paint job was done on the production line at the factory at the time of the reproduction RX-5 run. This is an original bike, not a repro.
