Those were used for the police to give parking tickets.  I used to race my brothers with a cushman with the suicide shifter on the side of the tank.  We had 3 of the cushmans Old one that was dark blue, it was the faster one then the turquoise one then the red step through one.  Man I had fun in the early 60's. My dad used to repair them for everyone even the police.

The green one was a railroad yard Truckster at some point in its history.. Gonna get an easy retirement in a certain Texas campground... Or it'll be my swap meet ride after I put a few Willys stickers on it...lol.. From what I understand it needs engine work and brakes and a windshield if I can find one...

We've got quit a few of them at the mill that the mechanics run around in. They've (IP) recently started going to three wheel trikes and golf carts though as a more efficient (cheaper) form of transportation.

Ed,  those would've been Cushman Eagles,  believe.  We used to call them Pushmans, probably because we were envious of those that had one! LOL

Yes Jeff is quite an individual. We are a very fortunate group to have him as such an active member. Oh, and thanks Jeff for the much appreciated "gift". A nicer guy you will not meet.

Matt got a Sewing Machine.  We should get Jeff a GPS!Clap

When Jeff tells his boss he stoped on the way home to see a friend...little does he know that Jeff had to go accross two state lines just to reach that friend!

Well of course if your traveling from Illinois to Wisconsin you HAVE to go through Baxter Minnesota to get there. Everyone knows that! Next thing you'll be saying is that you don't have to cross North Carolina to get from Illinois to Roanoke! Good thing I've got an iPhone!
