"This is really rare Motorbike and sidecar that’s renovated but just needs some finishing touches."


Excelsior-Henderson is notable as one of 'The Big 3' motorcycle makers alongside Harley-Davidson and Indian. This one features the classic V Twin engine.
It was probably sold in Sweden from new and put into storage from 1929. According to a previous it the bike starts and runs, but the gearbox needs adjusting and an inspection.
This Big X has been in storage at a car museum in Gillstad outside Lidköping for many years, where a radio dealer has taken old vehicles in exchange since the 1950s. The cars and motorcycles then showed up in his private museum.
