Description

This is a no reserve auction. YAY!1911-13 early racing motorcycle. A remake of the Oilzum racer pictured in Stephen Wright's book "American Racer". This was to become an identical copy to the one pictured in the book. Now believed to be gone from existence, his bike was meant to fill the void left behind by one of the original fusions of 2 great motorcycle companies of the time.The motor is an original 1913 Excelsior twin. We believe most all of the parts are there and in good shape. This is a mocked up basket case. Not shown are some valves andmiscellaneousother small pieces.The frame is a quality reproduction 1911-13 Indian twin modified to fit the Excelsior motor. Nice start on a reproduction gas tank with some fittings. Forks are original Indian but will need some work to undo some of the modifications on the stem. All doable. The picture in the photos is a photocopy from the American Racer book. it is from this picture the racing motorcycle was to be built.We're thinking a perfect unique possibility for the Cannonball! Please call if you have any questions before bidding. Thank you 831 252-0337
