Brake light powered by a six-volt alkaline battery with brake arm activated switch. Original manufactured 1948 Series 50 scooters did not include a brake light. The six-volt Magneto provides ignition. The scooter is equipped with a centrifugal automatic drum clutch transmission that does not shift, therefore only one gear.

It has the original manufacture furnished coil spring seat and generator. Manufacturer furnished aftermarket rail bumper, chrome fender wingtip, blue dot taillight lens, rear view mirror and Klaxon horn. Front wheel and headlight housing were chromed. Front steering fork and frame were powder-coated and the body, trunk lid and front fender were painted to match. Vehicle runs on unleaded gasoline and the engine oil used is Valvoline VR1 Racing Oil, SAE 30, for high-zinc protection of the push-rod and flat tappets. One quart capacity. Body is easily removable for engine, drive chain, rear tire and brake assembly maintenance. There are four front wheel knee action and two rear swing arm grease fitting zerks.
