Excelsior 1918 1000 cc ioe V-twin combination frame#10147-8 engine#92581
The Excelsior Supply Company of Chicago started producing motorcycles with its own single cylinder engine in 1908.
Some years later the firm became part of Ignaz Schwinn’s bicycle empire.
In the years around 1915 the production models ranged from a 269 cc two stroke single Baby Triumph look-alike to a big 1000 cc V-twin.
This handsome combination has a three speed gearbox and has been restored with great care.
