This is one of the two Whizzer Wasp20" Bikes we own - Second one below
1960's Whizzer 20" Wasp - Extremely Rare!
The Whizzer Wasp features a 26"
Schwinn frame modified to utilize 20" wheels. Whizzer never put this 20" model in production for the general
public. There were only 6 prototypes made. We own two of the six Whizzer Wasp 20"
bikes every produced.
The second Whizzer Wasp 20" motor bike is shown below. The Whizzer Wasp below
features a few upgrades and modifications to make it safer such as the 5" front and rear coaster brake system;
front and rear lights; Echo pipe and Whizzer speedometer. The most notable upgrade is the modified Whizzer
crankset that's wider to better accommodate the Echo pipe and chainguard to ensure a smooth pedal start. The motor kit
is NOS - right out of box. It's an amazing piece of Whizzer history!
Some used earlier high-rise handlebars
a banana seat to give it the "sting-ray look"
Whizzer Wasp 20" was never went into production, as it was overtaken by
the invasion of Japanese bikes that flooded the US Market.
