Mine was a 1958 Cushman Eagle, it had an 8 HP engine , a foot clutch and a 2 speed tank shift, I got it for my 8th birthday in 1966....I have a picture of the model cushman I had in the same color
I remember those bikes. 2 stroke.I road a few clutchless mini bikes that I don't really count. First road bike was a hand me down from my father. He bought a new Suzuki GT750 (Water Buffalo) in 1971. In 1973 he had orders (Army) to Germany and was going to be gone for three years. I had the Suzuki for that three year span. The side car came off the day I got it. Had a blast on that bike. Picture is actually bike with nephews on it.

That was my arch enemies motorcycle down the street.
Yep. A Pinger. You get the right chamber on it then when it hits the powerband, it lifts the front wheel off the ground for sure!In it's day, one heck of a bike. I put expansion chambers on it. It had a very unique sound. It was really loud when you got on it, which was verrrryyy often back then.
