Is anyone aware of an Excelsior motorcycle group - the ones from the teens and twenties, not the new ones... or even better, someone who is really familiar with the twins from the teens.

Thanks

I know a fellow who might be able to help you out.

Failing that, I know the fellow who builds the new (old) OHC excelsior replicas: http://flashbackfab.com/excelsior-005/

This is probably the easiest way...

This is the fellow I buy my motorcycle tires from: http://www.itctires.com/ His name is Eric. His Father, George is into early Excelsior bikes and I believe Eric may be as well. Just give them a phone call and see if they can help you out.

From reading years ago I know they had a "super x" engine and ended up part of Henderson - or Henderson ended up being part of Exelsior.

 

Henderson had a NS mounted inline 4 engined bike. Indian had one later on. Not sure if Indian absorbed them or if it was a coinkidink.
