Thanks to Bev & Jolly MacLean
for this info.
This is a SUPER CYCLE which had been in production BEFORE
the founders of Midget Motors built the first King Midget.
The company (name?) that built the Super Cycle had gone under and Claude Dry teamed with Dale Orcutt to buy out the scooter factory. A few scooters were assembled from parts--then the left over parts were sold to (postwar) do it yourselfers through their own publication called Midget Motor Directory (a scaled down version of Hemmings Motor News). The parts and classified ads in MMD paid the bills and they developed a car--the King Midget.

A rare find was Dennis Jasper's 1950 King Midget Super-Cycle Motor Scooter. "There are only five scooters known to exist," he says. "When I got the Super-Cycle, it had a front fender, the frame and the tail lamp. I had to build the forks, the rear body and the braking system. The rear body was the hardest part of the restoration because I had to build a jig to hold it all in place. "This 6hp, four-cycle, Wisconsin-powered scooter uses wheelbarrow wheels that were bored out and fitted with car wheel bearings. "It's surprisingly comfortable to ride," Dennis admits.
