Mustang Motorcycles were produced between 1947 and 1965 and were mildly successful in the booming post-war years. Produced by Gladden Products, Glendale, California, which had been kept busy during World War II manufacturing components for several aircraft, developed this little motorbike as a way to stay in business. Many feel that the Mustang name was selected as a tribute to the fabulous P51 Mustang fighters that the company had been supplying components for. Early models were eagerly snapped up by the general public and as demand grew, so did amenities, like easier handling, easier shifting, and more horsepower. Mustangs were well-engineered, and with the Stallion, a true performance machine was created. Powered by the Mustang MC-75 engine, it is a single-cylinder engine with a displacement of 19.5 cubic-inches and rated at 9.5-HP, backed by a Burman four-speed manual transmission. The example appears to have been given a thorough restoration and is quite well-appointed with a pair of black leather saddle bags attached to the chrome rack. Presented with a gloss black frame, silver and black fuel tank with an original Mustang speedometer/odometer mounted to the handlebars which shows 2,750 miles; however, true miles are unknown. While we have not started or tested this ride, it appears to be quite roadworthy and will benefit from a simple awakening before hitting the road. Dimensions are 59" L x 28" W x 41" H.
