Excelsior 1919 Boardtrack racer ohc.wmv

Excelsior 1919 Boardtrack Racer. The captain of the Excelsior racing team, Bob Perry had a special relationship with the Schwinn family. Ignaz Schwinn, the owner of the Excelsior Motorcycle Company envisioned Perry as a future executive in the company and did not want him to race, but Perry wanted to race and was on hand to ride one of the new 1919 61 cu.in. OHC machines in its debut at Ascot Park, Ca. on January 4, 1920. The Excelsior team arrived early for testing and discovered that the extremely powerful new engine performed like it could fulfill Schwinn's hopes for a racer that would beat the Indian and Harley-Davidson works machines. On January 3 it was announced that Bob Perry would ride the Excelsior on full throttle around the Ascot oval. He crashed and was killed when he lost control entering a turn at a speed estimated between 95 and 100 miles per hour. "Schwinn was devastated. The Excelsior team withdrew from the Ascot event, and Ignaz Schwinn went into the racing shop and personally destroyed all of the overhead cam engines with a sledge hammer. Not one of the machines survived. This 1919 Excelsior Boardtrack racer was carefully recreated by Paul Brodie, using 6 known photographs of several of the original machines. Caracteristics: Excelsior 1000cc, 61 cu.in. OHC V-twin. Approx. 49HP @ 6000 rpm Speed 120 mph+ Yesterdays Antique Motorcycles Nederweert Netherlands www.yesterdays.nl

Peugeot 1903 motorcycle
Peugeot 1903 2HP Type "C" 239 cc Although a prototype De Dion-engined Peugeot bicycle was displayed at the Paris Salon in 1898, the first motorized cycles to leave the factory were actually tricycles with De Dion & Bouton engines. The popularity of the tricycle was unchallenged at first, but by 1902 the motorized bicycle started to take the lead: at the Paris Salon in December 1901 81 motorised cycles were exhibited, of which there were only 21 tricycles or quadricycles. One of the sixty motorized bicycles present was a Peugeot, propelled by a 1 ½ HP ZL engine. The engine was clipped to the front down tube and had a displacement of 198 cc. Its weight was only 35 kilograms and a cruising speed of between 25 and 40 km/h was attainable. For 1903 the engine was placed in the "New Werner Position" and now two models were catalogued, one with 2HP ZL engine and the other with Peugeot's own 2 HP power source, both types having the same cycle parts. The "Type C' has a bore x stroke of 66x70 mm and the engine is fed by a Longuemare carburetor. Relatively few of these machines were produced, so this is a pretty rare survivor. This early veteran is in authentic condition but she will need some TLC to put her back on the road again.





Militaire motorcycle 1915
The 4 cylinder MILITAIRE was produced from 1913 until 1917 by the Militaire Auto Company of Buffalo New York. Its four cylinder ( inlet over Exhaust) 68 cu. in. engine produce some 11.5 H.P. It has some very unusual features, such as wooden artillery wheels with 28 inch x 3 clincher tires, a curved front axel on which the front bearing slid in order to make a turn, a car like three-speed "on the floor" type stick shift plus reverse gear, shaft drive through beveled gears with an enclosed ring gear and pinion at the rear wheel and on the side, retractable outrigger wheels which also has a big advantage when waiting for the traffic lights. These foot lever operated wheels retract like landing gear on an aircraft. One can stop to a complete standstill and accelerate again without taking ones feet from the foot boards. The length of 97" must have made it the longest machine on the road. Speed is claimed to be from 3 to 70 miles an hour. The original cost was $335.00 and it was a lot of machine for the money. This 1915 model is an extremely rare survivor of one of the most charismatic motorcycles ever built. Only a handfull of these have survived and this one is presented to you by www.yesterdays.nl worldwide dealers for fine antique motorcycles.

Leon Bollee 1897
Leon Bollee 1897. Yesterdays motorcycles. Netherlands. ca 1897 Leon Bollee Tricar-Tricycle . Single cylinder ca 800cc 4-stroke engine Automatic/atmospheric inlet valve Hot tube ignition, so there is no spark plug used for the ignition. Instead of a spark plug ( not yet invented/perfected in 1897 ) there is a hollow tube outside the cylinder head as an extension of the combustion chamber. An external gasoline burner heats up the tube to red hot and this provides the heat/spark to ignite the compressed air/fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. There is a 3-speed gearbox which works remarkably well. Flat leather belt drive to rear wheel. Braking is by moving the complete rear wheel with drive pulley forward against the brake block. This also reduces the tension on the drive belt and the belt will run free on the front drive pulley. By moving the combined hand lever / gear change lever backwards the belt drive will be tightened ( clutch ) and one is on the move again.

OK Supreme 1927 motorcycle with Bradshaw engine
OK Supreme 1927 349 cc OHV oil cooled Bradshaw OK motorcycles were manufactured by the firm of Humphries & Dawes in Birmingham from 1899 till 1939: from 1926, when one of the controlling partners left the firm, the company was renamed OK Supreme. The motorcycles were built at the Hall Green Works in Birmingham. The company had some success in racing in the twenties and was sufficiently well established to overcome the downturn in trade in the Depression years. In the years before the Great War the company fitted among others "Precision" engines, in the early twenties Union and Villiers two stroke power units were fitted. In the mid-twenties the range consisted of two stroke models of 292 and 348 cc cc, the sports tourer OHV Bradshaw and sv and ohv Blackburne power units. Plenty of choice in engines! From the late twenties the company used mainly sv and ohv JAP engines, although there was also a model with OK ohc engine for some years. Granville Bradshaw designed several oil cooled engines; the first was a 500 cc ohv flat twin which was used by Zenith in 1920. In 1921 the range was extended with a 350 cc ohv single and a 1000 cc V-twin. The engines were produced by James Walmsley & Co in Preston and marketed by Gilbert Campling. From 1925 the engines were built by Dorman in Stafford. The longstroke Bradshaw engine -- used by OK from 1924 to 1928 - has bore and stroke dimensions of 68x96 mm and mechanical lubrication. The machine has a 3 speed gearbox and Brown & Barlow carburettor. It weighs about 200 lbs, so it's a light and agile machine.





Historic vehicle Torpedo V4 1909
http://www.facebook.com/historicvehicles Motocykl vyroben v jediném exempláři v letech 1908-1909 firmou Trojan & Nagl sídlící v Kolíně. Pravděpodobně nebyl nikdy prezentován na veřejnosti a o jeho dalším osudu nejsou žádné zprávy. Neobvyklá konstrukce o objemu 1600 ccm je dána zdvojením dvouválce téže značky. Dochována pouze jediná nekvalitní fotografie, ze které se vycházelo při stavbě repliky. Motorcycle was made in a single copy in 1908-1909 by Trojan & Nagl, from Kolín. Probably has never been presented to the public and his fate isnt known. Unusual design of four-cylinder engine with capacity of 1600 ccm is given by doubling two-cylinder engine from the same brand. Only one low-quality photo survived from theese times and it was used to build a replica.





Anzani 1925 Pacing bike 2000 cc 2 cyl ohv
MOTO DE VELODROME LEON VAUTHIER A MOTEUR BICYLINDRE ANZANI Moto de Vélodrome Léon Vauthier à Moteur bicylindre Anzani From the end of the 19th century, this motorcycle was used in the cycling world in record-breaking attempts for speed. It was based on the following principle: a bicycle equipped with a very large extension was harnessed to a motorcycle, which first towed it, then took it up to full speed, then let it go so that the cyclist could reach maximum speed using leg power alone. In those days, this type of record was extremely popular. The record of 100 km/h by bicycle was beaten on 15 September 1909 by a bicycle harnessed to a motorcycle equipped with a 3-cylinder Anzani engine. On 1 November 1925, Jean Brunier, a French cyclist, set the bar even higher with his record speed of 120.958 km/h at the Linas-Montlhéry motor-racing track, harnessed to a motorcycle driven by Léon Vauthier. Léon Vauthier, as well as driving motorcycles for these kinds of record-breaking attempts, also built his own training motorcycles. The motorcycle shown here is most likely one of the machines designed by Léon Vauthier himself, the frame of which was specially made in the early 1920s to take part in this type of sport. The rear part of the frame was specially designed to facilitate the attachment of a racing bike. The front suspension is bolstered by a parallelogram fork. It is equipped with a powerful Anzani V twin-cylinder engine. The engine has a displacement of 2000 cm3 with open Exhaust. Its magneto is positioned in the centre of the V; the engine is fitted with a "drip feed" oil pump and has extra lubrication at the bottom of the second cylinder, which is controlled by the oil tank. This rare Léon Vauthier creation also comes with a stunning copper cylindrical combination oil/fuel tank. For a great many years it was part of the collection at the Musée de l'Automobiliste in Mougins, before it joined a very large French collection in 2006. It was exhibited alongside objects which reflected the history of pioneers in aviation, symbolising the glorious history of the magnificent Anzani engines in this field.
