This rare 1917 Excelsior sidecar is owned by Kevin Lee. The bike was purchased from the Lee Hartung museum auction in late 2011. This was a rare and exciting project to preserve. After hours of delicately removing the top layers of old paint we salvaged most of the its original paint. Although a lot of the original paint was deteriorated away you could really get a feel for the army green and pin stripping that excelsior paid great detail to in production. Enjoy the video and the progression photos.
