Overview

This 1913 Excelsior Twin Motorcycle is rumored to have been purchased new by a movie studio for a feature film made in Hollywood in the teens (we are in the process of a search for movies this may have been used in). 

The current owner purchased the bike 20 years ago from the second owner who had worked for the studio and purchased many vehicles when the studio closed. This Excelsior Twin, motorcycle with a sidecar, had been stored in a hangar in a small airport in the Los Angeles area for decades. The current owner spotted it at least 25 years ago and asked about it every year until the owner died and instructed his son to watch for this husband and wife at the next air show and sell them the motorcycle and car if they still wanted it. 

This owner has cared for the motorcycle and kept it in original trim while storing indoors. The motorcycle runs great and is used just enough each year to maintain its condition. 

Mileage

Unknown, no speedometer

Paint

The second owner said he thought it may have been repaint in the early 1930’s. A close examination reveals that the gas tank was repainted and the pin striping is not original. The second owner stated that the sidecar paint is original and close examination suggests this to be true.

Sheet Metal

All sheet metal is in good condition and appears to be original. Minimal dings and dents but certainly, has a classic patina.

Chrome

No Chrome. Any shiny stuff on this year model would have been nickel.

Mechanical

This 1913 motorcycle has been maintained in running order all of its life! It is started periodically and runs great. If you know the starting sequence it is an easy start. Idles right out and is smooth through the gears. Check the video!
