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 Excelsiors own 2-speed Goblin engine. This example has been stored under the vendor's workbench for a number of years and will need a full restoration before use. Unfortunately, the paperwork has gone missing over the years. Comes with a period catalogue, insruction book and a copied workshop manual.
