Daniel Brunkow brought his model Cushman 711 scooter into the museum to show our staff, and we talked him into letting us display the model on temporary loan. The 1/4 scale model was built to a high level of detail, capturing the fun of an era when motorized two-wheel transportation was a little simpler. The scooter is made primarily from wood and brass.

In addition to the complete Model 711 scooter, Daniel also offered a model of a 1939 Cushman Husky engine for display. Like the full scooter model, the engine has a high degree of detail. Even the tiny butterfly on the carburetor works as does the kick starter gearing.
