    I don't think I have posted these yet. One of these dapper fellows is my great uncle. The Excelsior is a 1914.

    I am told these Eagles are super rare. (At least Matt Walksler has never seen one in person before!)

    Beautiful. and I'll be it sounds friggin bitchin with those pipes.

    That is always a tense time, Looks so good you hate to dirty it up then again you just can't wait to get it out on the road and enjoy it.

    Never understood how someone could restore an old bike then just let it sit as decoration. That would drive me insane. Part of the joy is to validate your skills and expertise by firing it up and bringing the old gal back to life.

    I love this. I was looking at dealer's example last weekend and realized a light, simple, responsive twin is still relavent today. Especially with these looks.
