1948 Martin Roadrunner Whizzer Motorbike

1948 Martin Roadrunner Whizzer Motorbike

Prior to Schwinn designing a Whizzer-compatible bicycle, Cleveland Welding Company produced the Roadmaster bicycle. 


 Martin Roadrunner was advertised by Whizzer of Washington as the "first post-war lightweight motorcycle."  Above is a picture of a 1948 Martin Roadrunner Motorbike purchased from Davidson's Cyclery in Hanford, California.  What easily sets this Roadrunner apart from most Martin Roadrunner motorbikes is the Whizzer J motor kit with a kickstart as well as all Whizzer upgrades and goodies.  This Martin Roadrunner motorbike is one heck of a ride!
