My father attended the Whizzer Factory Service School in 1948 and 1950, and completed the technical training courses to become fully qualified and authorized to work on any and all Whizzer Motorbikes. After completing the course, Dietrich Kohlsaat, the President of Whizzer Motor Co., gave my dad one of the factory's Whizzer F motorbike. This was one of the motorbikes that the Whizzer Factory Service students would use to engage in technical training at the factory. It hangs in our museum along with my dad's Whizzer Factory Service School Diplomas.
