That is pretty cool.

Shortly after my dad retired, he bought a brand new Whizzer. It had been a childhood dream, to own one. He happened upon a dealer in DeKalb that has brand new replicas. Bought one against mom's wishes. I guess she never did like me and my brother having bikes, but him on this contraption just set her off. I don't think she talked to him for 2 weeks.

Friend of mine restores '69 CB750's to exactly as new. They are about $30k. I can only imagine what the H-D might cost.

Without a motor? Seems cheap.

My guess is that is a kit price. You buy it for 10k and build it. Fully assembled is gonna be significantly more.

Simple answer: If I have to explain, you wouldn't understand!

This recreation is from the era when HD was a pioneer, basically sticking a simple motor on basically a bicycle frame. This machine has elemental simplicity, an elegance, charm, and is immensly appealing compared to what they've become. There's no clumsiness to it, no pretensions, no social sense of belonging to a group attached to it, no overt display of wealth, no look-at-me grab for attention with chrome and add-on chrome accessories. I've heard HD's from this era, and there's no noise for the sake of making noise attached to them, either. Just a quiet chuffing.

In short, this little machine is an appealing, charming example of pretty much everything HD isn't anymore. Add me to the list of riders who have no interest in today's HD and have no desire to ever buy one, but would love to own that little 1910 machine. Timeless, indeed.
