Excelsior were the first motorcycle manufacturer in Britain and their first offering appeared in 1896. Originally trading as Bayliss Thomas and Co. they sold off their bicycle business and changed their name to the Excelsior Motor Company. In the early days they were powered by Minerva DeDion and MMC motors, but by the late 1920s they had developed their own OHC 350cc single which had great success on the race track. When production resumed after WWII Excelsior produced a range of small Villiers powered motorcycles from 98cc to 250cc. This is one such 98cc example that was retored some years ago; since that time the bike has been stored, and it is offered here with a V5c and a handbook.
