Presenting just a few of the many bikes from my visit to the Antique Automobile Club of America Museum in Hershey, Pennsylvania.

If you are in the Hershey area, the museum is well worth a visit! I’ll be posting them in groups – to see more, just click the AACA tag at the end of this post

1965 Skat-Kitty Mini Scooter
(four-cycle, 2.5 hp) 

wendyvee says:
Sorry for the super-lame picture … this poor Skat-Kitty was eclipsed by an office plant. I was going to slide it back for the picture, but I figured that something would go terribly wrong (knowing my luck) if I had attempted it.

a portion of the placard:
The knee-high mini-scooter was one of the smallest minibikes on the market in the 1960s. It was licensable for street use and became an instant hit with Shrine Units for parades. The Skat-Kitty was available through the Sears Catalog and through the S&H Greenstamp Company.


 
 

1958 Cushman Eagle Motor Scooter
(one-cylinder, 4.8 hp)

wendyvee says:
I have to say that this was my favorite of the vintage scooters that the AACA had on display when I visited. It’s a classy-looking little guy!


 
 

1954 Eshelman Child’s Sports Car
(one-cylinder, 2 hp)

a portion of the placard:
Cheston Eshelman began building his mail-order “sports cars” in 1953 as a successful extension of his small garden tractor business. He advertised the cars on the back pages of popular magazines of the day. Eshelman’s midget cars featured battery-powered head and tail lights and air-cooled Briggs & Stratton engines.


 
 

1948 Whizzer Motor Bike
“Pacemaker” Model
(four-cycle, 138cc, 2.5 hp)

a portion of the placard:
The Pacemaker was marketed as cheap everyday transportation. One could also purchase the Whizzer motor separately and install it on any balloon tired bicycle.
