Whizzer started its operations back in August of 1939 in Los-Angeles when a famous airplane parts manufacturer, Breene-Taylor, launched their first Bicycle Motor called the ‘Whizzer D’. This air-cooled, four-stroke cycle engine kit was capable of producing a horsepower of 1.375 and was accepted by the market very well. Following the success of this Bicycle Motor, the company started manufacturing more of these. The basic idea was to sell kits to be assembled and attached to the average consumer bicycles, hence creating a motorized bicycle. Later on, they also introduced a model ‘E’ which was based on the same concept but was a little more sophisticated.
Unfortunately, Breene-Taylor was not able to earn a lot of profit from these engines and sold off the Whizzer Motor operations to Dietrich Kohlsatt in 1942. The company continued its production and released its first pre-assembled motorized bicycle in 1948 which was called the ‘Peacemaker’. These Peacemakers could accommodate a number of accessories and enabled almost everyone to enjoy the thrill of a motorbike.
Whizzer Motors was the trend-setter for scooters in the region but unfortunately, this became the reason for its own death. It could not beat the competition of some underpriced imported scooters at that time and hence ceased production in 1962.
The company made a comeback in 1997 with improved technology, better machinery, and skilled labor. They started production again and were back on the road with new models. These models were significantly enhanced and had many upgrades such as disc brakes, dual mirrors, automatic CVT drive, and a lot more. This time, they did much better in terms of sales and were a huge success.
After getting into the production for the second time, they are again on a temporary hiatus and have not been producing any more motorbikes or engines since 2009. Their replacement parts, and bike accessories although are still easily available in the market.
