Greetings to all. This is one of the later Model C "binder" Cushmans, with the C8 designation, and yes, even though production was declining then, they made quite a few of these with the WICO EK mag on the side and the Tillotson carb. I own a couple of them, and have several pieces of original literature showing the WICO set up on these engines and also showing the Tillotson carb, with exploded view of the carb and all its parts. There are no listings of serial numbers anywhere that I know of, but I have collected about 1,500 serial numbers in my 18+ years of collecting and restoring only Cushmans. Jim

Jim, Thanks for response. I never saw one like this before and the BYbook says they all had Shiebler carbs. This one looks like a factory build so thought it must be a late modle. Shure would like to know the year modle! D. Smith
