The Cushman scooter company was started in 1903 in Lincoln, Nebraska, by Everett and Clinton Cushman, incorporating as the Cushman Motor Works in 1913. In 1922 they began production of their 4-stroke Husky engine which ultimately would be used in farm equipment, pumps, lawn mowers, and boats. And more scooters...the Model 53 was widely used by the US Armed Forces in WWII and into peacetime and the motorcycle-like Eagle was in production for approximately 16 years.

The scooter being offered is the post-war iconic, step-through 'turtle back' 60 Series, whose design and ease of operation made it popular with men and women alike. The 60 Series consisted of three models; the Model 62 with a centrifugal clutch, the Model 64 with Varimatic belt drive automatic transmission, and the Model 65 with a clutch and 2-speed transmission.

Today, this neat bike is not running although the foot klaxon is working well. And precious little is known about it other than the fact that the vendor bought it as is from Cushman parts supplier Jim's Scooter Parts in St. Paul, Minnesota a few years ago to 'remember' his first motorcycle bought in his teens. Given the ready availability of Cushman parts it could be made to run in a 'Speedy' fashion...then the decision would need to be made as to what to do with the frame and bodywork. Restore? Maintain as a survivor? You decide!
