If I had access to a 100 year old scoot, in a heartbeat.

Been a dream of mine to do this run.

An acquaintance of mine builds Excelsior OHC replicas from scratch. I wonder if he might be eligible.

Nope.

Motorcycle entries must have been manufactured in 1928 or earlier. Generally, any motorcycle manufactured in 1928 or earlier as originally manufactured and/or modified in its year of manufacture is eligible for entry.

  • Motorcycles must be and appear original in nature, period correct modifications and customizations are ok; No modern replica machines are allowed!!
  • Engine Cases must be original
  • Period correct Transmissions only: No late model 4 speed transmissions
  • Period Correct carburetors: Linkert, Schebler,etc; No late model carbs allowed (S&S, Mikuni, etc)
  • Maintan speeds of 45 mph

Shame.. There are NO originals. All five were destroyed.

It's also the 100th anniversary of the Excelsior OHC this year.
