I recently picked up this 1957 Cushman Eagle from a fellow on Wi.  It has been modified with a 23 HP vanguard motor and Comet clutch along with several other opt

ions. It has front and rear disk brakes, luggage carrier, larger seat and lots of chrome and goodies. This bike is fast and just what I need for riding the mountain roads here in N. Georgia.It rides like a dream!!!!

I just picked up this 1965 silver eagle in Jasper Georgia a couple weeks ago. It is an original bike with just three thousand miles on it. I’m not sure if I will restore it or use it as is. It’s a pretty nice bike, so I think it would be a shame to change it right now. I think I’ll just drive it for awhile………….restore it later.

It’s getting there!!! I have finished this bike and would like to thank Mr Andy Caruso of Livonia Mi. Andy painted all the sheet metal parts and did a flawless job. Andy’s work is second to none! Thanks! I will be taking the bike to it’s first show on Sept 20th.

I recently found this old eagle on Craigslist in north Georgia. I found out this bike was awaiting restoration. The man who owned it had passed away. His kids were cleaning out the garage and threw away the complete motor assembly. OUCH!!!

They almost pitched the bike also,but the bike was saved by the family’s pastor. I bought it just last week. It is currently at my son’s house in Atlanta. I will be driving down there next month to bring it back. Looks like I will be looking for a complete engine for this one. I will post some restoration photos as things progress.

This was a really fun bike to build. This is the converted jetsweep. I took all the sheet metal parts to a friend and he did all the painting. OUTSTANDING !!! The frame was powder coated.

The red lights really flash on and off. The siren is functional and loud. It has a cb mic and antenna just for looks. COOL! I had the Mayberry badges made up and they are sharp. This is probably one of the very nicest pacemaker’s in the country. People can’t belive it! It’s fun!

I bought this bike in Lansing Mi. It is the allstate jetsweep that was sold by sears way back when. I decided to convert it into the cushman version and make it into a police theme bike. This one became the Mayberry bike. I did upsize the 5hp motor to a 8 hp.

A friend of mine told me about a cushman eagle that was for sale in Laingburg Mi. I drove up and took a look at it. The bike was owned by a gentlemen farmer. He had it stored under a tarp in a chicken coop. The bike was pretty complete and in decent shape. I decided to do a complete frame up restortation and it turned out great as you can see from the photo’s.  I ended up selling the bike to Mike Jacobs Of Shreveport La. He has a really pristine eagle. Take a look at the assembly pictures.
