1965 Cushman Truckster - Original Classic
This is a really fun vehicle that brings smiles and waves wherever it goes. I try to describe my items as accurately as I can so please read all of this listing, examine the pictures and do your research. There is a huge following for Cushman scooters and Trucksters and this is one that could easily be made into a prize winning classic.
For sale is a hard to find 1965 Cushman Truckster three wheel pickup. I have owned it for about two years and it is in remarkable original condition for a 48 year old trike. It has a three speed transmission with reverse that shifts on the column. It runs well and even better it stops well. I replaced the master brake cylinder and the slave cylinders and shoes on the two rear wheels so they functions well. It needs a brake light switch and you could rebuild the front brake if you feel like you need it. It has 19,858 original miles and appears to have been used or at least stored under cover. It is fully titled and licensed here in Virginia as a motorcycle and is road legal. I just drove it all over town to be sure it is in proper working order.
The gauges, turn signals and lights work, except for the brake lights, and the engine runs smoothly with no smoke. The gears work smoothly and the clutch is strong. It has what appears to be mostly original paint. With a new paint job you would have a show quality vehicle. If I do not have success in this auction I will probably paint it and sell it for much more. I have so many projects I just don’t have time for this one.
