Cushman model 53 A, built 1946

Cushman model 53 A,  built 1946

This is a 1946 rolling chasis from a Cushman model 53A civilian airborne motor scooter. It has pencil springs in the front and barrel springs in the rear. The military version only had springs on the seat. The tires are the same size as were used on WWII observation aircraft, 6.00 X 6 as compared to the 4.00 X 8 that came on other models of '46 Cushmans. Notice that the rear tire has no tread at all. It even says "aircraft" on the sidewall.

(Look at the larger verision of this picture. It has plenty of resolution.)

You can see where the engine mounts directly to the frame. No rubber mounts. The rear wheel is mounted to a U-shaped sub frame that allows the wheel to move up and down on bumps. You can see the linkage of the foot-operated clutch just in front of the rear wheel. The brake pedal is on the right side. There is no brake on the front wheel.

Because the clutch is automatic with a pedal operated override, you can come to a stop without pushing in the clutch. The two-speed transmission is not shown.

These old scooters are very easy to ride. Most people can master it in about ten minutes.

Day 169 - June 18, 2011

Day 169 - June 18, 2011

Second flat in six months! Driving back to the trailer from a provision run, my tire light came on. Knowing it comes on at 10% change or so I continued to the trailer slowly over the pothole filled roads. When I parked I could hear the hissing and shortly after it was flat. Lucky for CAA. I need new tires and figured I may as well get them now. Unfortunately the 2008 Town and Country's have a weird size that are out of stock in north America. So I'll have to pay for a repair. I'll see how it compares to the $15. I paid in Arizona.

Other stuff today:
I saw a bear on the road into town. It was gone before I could get a photo.

My sister and I with help from our neighbour (Gryfin's mom) and BF put the dock in. Now we can swim from ladder without touching icky bottom or going to kiddy beach.

The weather was absolutely the very best it could be.
