1962 Cushman Eagle Scooter

Everett and Clinton Cushman began making farm machinery and two-cycle boat motors in Lincoln, Nebraska, in 1901. The Model 53 Airborne was made famous during World War II as a scooter that could be air-dropped alongside paratroopers. In 1949, Cushman introduced its most popular model, the Eagle. This was a departure from the step-through scooter design to one that resembled a scaled-down traditional motorcycle, namely a Harley-Davidson Knucklehead or an Indian Chief. This very nice example has gone through a complete restoration. It sports the Husky 319cc, 5 HP four stroke engine, two speed transmission and claimed a top speed of 60 MPH.
