West Texas Fair and Parade Event Sept. 2017

Thanks to Don Henry, Don Paige, and John Hensley for preparing this Meet. The weather was wonderful and there were 3 days of Cushman friends together. We enjoyed meals at Skeets, The Cove, Sharon Allen’s Barbeque, and Mrs. Allen’s. 

Thursday 13 scooters headed toward Buffalo Gap out of the home base of Windmill RV Park, Merkel, Tx.

Don Henry and Barton Burgoon drove the chase vehicle.

Don Paige lead the rides.

Bill Tate, B.F. Smith, Pete Henderson, Martin Stafford, and Gary Mathis.

2 of our newest members, Gene Perry and James Perry. James’s son, Greg, is also a new member. 

Friday morning we rode toward Sweetwater Lake and LUNCH! 

17 scooters and 3 chase vehicles.

  1. Looks like fun! I wish there was somebody around Houston that did restorations on Cushmans. I have a 1958 Eagle that needs rebuilt. Been in 2 floods and the last time it was on the road was back in the 70’s.


  2. I see Jack Hadlock in the parade pics but he’s the only one I can make out that isn’t already listed. It’s still heartbreaking to see West Texas Fair & Rodeo parade pictures without Jimmy Martin in them!

    Love my Cushman family!
