I'll have to show this to my grandfather. He had a '57 Eagle if I remember correctly.

This is what the kids rode before the Japanese bikes invaded the market in the early 60's. I had an old one given to me around 1965. Basically it was a giant minibike. I was 8 or 9 and loved it. Then I got into motorcycles.

Mine was also blue and white before it was restored. Mine might be a 59 58 or 57? I think they are all the same?

What's that engine? Briggs flathead 2 cylinder? The dual exhaust pipes caught my eye...

It is a single Cushman 7hp Husky flathead. The other tube is the intake manifold to the updraft carb.
