This 1913 Excelsior 7SC (Short Coupled Frame) motorcycle was discovered over a fireplace in Central California. It was found in poor condition and appeared to have been beaten pretty hard over the years so a complete restoration was undertaken. The 1913 Excelsior motor was built by Johnny Eagles of Orange, CA. He also built the carb and magneto. The motor is beautiful with all details accounted for, including a very rare Schebler 1912-13 carburetor with a racing extension. The detail work on this machine is phenomenal!
The riveted tank is an original unit from the teens and was completely rebuilt by Jimmy Rader of Rader Hot Rods. The front fork is a factory racing fork and is very rare. The Venolia pistons were custom made for this 1913 Excelsior.
All bars and controls are Excelsior except a couple of the small pieces that were copied from original pieces. The seat is an original Mesinger seat restored by Heilmann in the 80s.
Everything works on the bike as it should. Shakes the ground!
Paintwork is unbelievable as well as the pinstriping. Flawless is the best word to describe it!
Frame is a Factory 7SC Frame.
