    1960 Cushman Super Eagle Scooter on Ebay

    Always liked the way these old Cushman scooters looked but never rode one. I like this one on ebay but know nothing about them.

    Re: 1960 Cushman Super Eagle Scooter on Ebay

    I always liked the Cushmans also. A friend of mine had a 1956 Cushman Eagle when we were in seventy grade. I had a chance to ride it a couple of times and can still remember the thrill. The best quality was that it looked like a Harley, had a foot clutch, and a hand shift. In 1958 my folks bought a 1952 Cushman Eagle from my uncle who was a supervisor at General Mills in Wichita and they shipped it to Minnesota. We picked it up from the railroad station in our '49 Chevy pickup a few weeks later, uncrated it, and I talked my mother into letting me put it in the kitchen by the old wood stove to warm up. I got her checked out and running that night and went for a ride about a mile up the road and back in -20F temperatures. I froze both legs pretty good! They were painful, and the skin turned black and peeled off a couple of days later! A worthy sacrifice for a first ride on my own Cushman. But it was the start of a great hobby in motorcycles. I put many miles on that Cushman, used up a few tires (special size of 4.75 x 7.75 available only through Cushman), and had to have the engine overhauled once. A couple of years later I bought a 1950 Harley EL (50EL 2978) from a neighbor and never looked back. With all of those Cushman miles using the foot clutch and hand shift it was an easy transition, except the Cushman throttle turned the opposite direction. I still have a soft spot in my heart for that old Cushman!! Great memories.

    That would have been my dream machine (of motorcycles) years ago! You'd have to stock up on those Cushman tires!

    Also in my menagerie I have 3 1/2 Cushman Eagles. ( more projects...LOL )
    and have owned a 1954 " barrel spring " Eagle.

    They're cool as hell, but with the small wheels can go into a wobble kinda easy. Saw one at Davenport a few years back with a WL 45 motor in it.

    Just something else I lusted after as a kid.

    I have a buddy who has a whole room full of Cushmans- and a few Doodlebugs as well. Doodlebugs draw quite a crowd at shows
