1939 (see text) Excelsior Autobyk, 98cc. Registration number LXS 791 (non transferrable). Frame number AX/2522. Engine number 2520.
Excelsior were Britain’s first motorcycle manufacturer, starting production of their own ‘motor-bicycle’ in 1896 based in Coventry before moving to Birmingham in 1921. Like most motorcycle manufacturers they joined the Autocycle boom in the 30s before moving over to war production in 1940.
The Autobyk marked Excelsior's return to civilian production in 1946 and was originally offered with the 98cc Villiers Junior De Luxe engine. For 1947 it was joined by a version using Excelsior's own 2-speed Goblin engine.
This example was re-registered with DVLA in 1983 and they declared the age to be 1939, by our reckoning the frame number and engine type would indicate a c.1946/7 age.
This example is in good patina order and has been running recently.
Sold with the V5C.
