Description
The Cushman Model 53 is probably as cool as a scooter gets. 4,734 of these bikes were produced to serve the US in World War II. These bare-bones scoots were intended to primarily be messenger bikes, helping to increase the mobility of troops and assist in communications. Their diminutive size was supposed to help them quickly but quietly maneuver around obstacles that might slow down Jeeps or armored units. But the best part of the Model 53s were how they were delivered. The US Air Force delivered them like many other provisions – out the back of a plane, strapped to a parachute! Unfortunately, this novel delivery mechanism posed a serious problem. As the scooter had no real suspension, many of the wheels were bent on landing, rendering some of the Cushman Model 53s useless as they hit the ground. Because of this, many scooters were destroyed on site, or just left in France. No one seems to know how many of the 53s ever came back to the US.
