This 1914 Excelsior has some history.It do smoke abit like it's big cousin.

A little over a year ago we were able to get the Velocipede up and running for the day!Bob Cantrell of Morganton, Georgia had owned this Excelsior Rail Inspectors Velocipede since 1956.  He remembers seeing it in Kurt Thomas' store when he was 8 years old.Kurt had explained to Bob that this Velocipede was converted from the original 1914 Excelsior that Lindbergh traded in on his Jenny Airplane in 1923.There is no record of the year when the Excelsior twin motorcycles was converted to a rail road Velocipede. After it was traded in, the conversion was professionally done for the time, probably by the rail road repair shop in Macon
