Its an antique motorcycle, that looks more like a bike with a motor attached.The one on ebay is a new version of an old bike.

Tony,

I'm surprised that you didn't know that.
The originals are real collectors items - worth $$.

Definitely not British! The ones in the photo are from the 40's.

The British did have a similar thing, but I can't remember what it was called. It'll come to me.

The Whizzer was a motorized conversion kit that could be added to most any bycicle. They were most often mounted to Schwinn bikes IIRC because the truss frame could support the added weight.
