Scooters, by definition, are motorized vehicles, usually 2 wheel although sometimes 3, with a step through platform. The Cushman Motor Scooters were produced from 1936 through 1965. The Model 53 was built for the military during WWII and was often dropped by parachute, thus it became known as the Cushman Airborne.
