Barber Motorcycle Museum: Cushman Motor Scooters

What started from two cousins, Everett and Clinton Cushman building farming machinery and two-cycle boat engines in Lincoln, Nebraska in 1901 developed into one of the most well known commercial and industrial vehicle companies. Used in factories, the military, airports and even on the links, Cushman vehicles are everywhere. Golf cart, anyone?

From the mid 1930s through the late 1960’s, the Cushman company also produced some of the most charming 2 and 3-wheeled motor scooters with model names like the Eagle, Model 53 Airborne and the Pacemaker.

    Aren’t Cushmans full of cool! There used to be (and still might be) a large gathering of Cushman owner in Carlisle each summer. So great to see a group of them riding down the street!

    Hi, I was looking at the red Cushman Model 53 Airborne pictured here on your website (at the right, foreground in the above photo). I have the exact same make/model and so was curious if you know what year this was manufactured? Thank you, Jon
