The Excelsior OHC Project
January 26, 2007 8:27 AM Subscribe
One day, a vintage motorcycle restorer gets an idea in his head to tackle a new project, restoring an old-timey "board-tracker"
bike. In and of itself, that's not such a big deal; over the past century, vehicle restoration has become equal parts hobby
, and spectator sport
. The catch with this particular project, however, is that there are no existing examples of the bike he wants to rebuild, the last known extant part remaining is a corroded engine case, and there are only 5 known photographs - all of which happen to show just the right side of the bike. This is the story (so far) of Paul Brodie's Excelsior OHC. [via]
