Early models were used by United States Paratroopers during World War II. The Cushman Model 53 was one of the catalysts behind the Italian Vespa and Lambretta explosion after the War.
Much more utilitarian and with more American-styling than their European counterparts, the Cushman still deserves it’s place in scooter history. Here are the pictures from the Fort Worth Dealership.
I can’t keep count of how many “old school biker guys” have told me they either had a Cushman Eagle or dreamed about owning one as a kid.
