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

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.

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.

1915 Henderson Motorcycle with modern rims and tires. It has later 1918-19 front forks, which is all I had at the time. I will change these when I paint later. This bike was rebuilt to ride in the 2010 Motorcycle Cannonball which I did not participate. Runs beautifully, with plenty of power to climb hills and get up with traffic. Wonderful ride!
