Though we’re apparently into the roof-collapsing snow season even before the first day of winter, those so inclined to ride in pairs with addresses in the sunshine states could do far worse than to end up with this matching set of 1963 Cushman Silver Eagles. Not only are these two-wheeled runabouts in restored and ready-to-go condition, but they also have consecutive serial numbers. While a matching set of scooters may bring to mind visions of all 1,466 pounds of Billy and Benny McCrary riding around on their minibikes, the world’s heaviest twins rode Hondas, having landed a sponsorship to ride the Japanese mini-motorcycles from New York to Los Angeles before they went out on the professional wrestling circuit. Cushman made its last Silver Eagle in 1966, when the McCrary twins were hovering around only 600 pounds each.
Here is an unbelievable find. A pair of 1963 Cushman Silver Eagles with consecutive serial numbers. I was told these bikes have never been separated since they were built. They have been totally restored by a world-renowned Cushman expert. They look and run like brand new machines. Really great “his and hers” mates.
