1946 Excelsior 98cc Autobyk
Frame no. SABTVRO3937038084 (see text)
Engine no. XX2717
After WW2 the Excelsior range became two-stroke only, the first two models - the Autobyk and Universal - using Villiers power units while the wartime Welbike continued to be built under license (as the Corgi) by Brockhouse Engineering using Excelsior’s own Spryt motor. This Excelsior Autobyk is powered by the Villiers Junior De Luxe engine. Previously registered ‘366 UXR’ (number transferred) it has been allocated the frame number ‘SABTVRO3937038084’ by the DVLA, which must be stamped on the frame by a local garage or franchised dealer before a new age-related registration mark can be issued. The vendor advises us that he bought the Excelsior towards the end of 2006 and has not started the engine. Repainted in 2007, the machine is presented in good cosmetic condition, though its mechanical condition remains unknown. Offered with expired MoT (November 2006) and DVLA correspondence.
