1936 Excelsior 350cc Manxman F12
Registration no. VG 8738
Frame no. MF153
Engine no. CX362
The Excelsior Manxman was offered as a road bike with 250, 350 and 500cc engines, and also as a production racer in the two smaller capacities. No doubt the presence in the range of the racing machines helped sales of the road bikes. These were all exceptionally good looking motorcycles with robust bevel drive ohc engines. In production from late 1934 until the war, they developed a fine reputation for reliability and were popular with clubmen. The lady vendor's late husband bought this 350 Manxman in 1963. It has seen little use in recent times and was last run in 2002. Following this period of inactivity re-commissioning will be required before taking to the road. It is accompanied by a V5C, some old MoT certificates, and a buff log book. Prospective bidders should satisfy themselves as to the motorcycle's completeness and mechanical condition.
