The Fort Worth Cushman Shop and the last of the Dealer Family Photos.

Well, here is the last installment of the Fauber’s Family Dealer Photos. This group of photos include the Cushman motor scooters.  Cushmans were made in Lincoln, Nebraska starting in 1936.

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.

Somewhere in France....

 

 

 

 

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.

This could be the greatest original caption I've ever seen.

The Trailster was introduced in 1960. It could climb steep hills with it's very high gear ratio.

Man, Mr. Fauber Jr. was cool.
