1959 Excelsior Universal, 150cc. Registration number 382 UXE (non transferrable) Frame number PU9/677 (V5C says PUG/677). Engine number 356B/ 321/29.
After WW2 Excelsior concentrated on the production of lightweights powered by engines of their own make and those of Villiers. The first 150cc model – the Excelsior-engined Courier C2 - appeared for the 1953 season and used the cycle parts of the existing Universal and Roadmaster series. Subsequent updates included a swinging-arm frame, a dual seat, and a change of name to 'Convoy' before the model was dropped, together with all the other Excelsior-engined singles, in 1957. After a year's break, the 150cc model was re-introduced as the Universal for 1959, this time with the Villiers 30C engine and three-speed gearbox. The Universal was one of the last surviving models in the Excelsior range when motorcycle production ceased in 1965.
Purchased by our vendor from a local Hull garage in 2004 this machine has been fettled by our deceased vendor over the years. It will require recommissioning.
Sold with the V5C and a pair of leg shields.
