1935 EXCELSIOR 350CC MANXMAN (LOT 364)
REGISTRATION NO. CYE 140
FRAME NO. MC219
ENGINE NO. CX159
The Excelsior Manxman was questionably one of the best-looking motorcycles of the 1930s. Its power unit was a beautifully engineered bevel drive ohc engine offered in 250, 350, and 500cc capacities. The lady vendor's late husband bought this 1935 350 Manxman in 1978. He is believed to have been in the process of finishing a full restoration with the intention that he and his partner could ride out together on a pair of Excelsiors, but sadly it was never completed. Prospective bidders should therefore satisfy themselves as to the motorcycle's completeness and mechanical condition. It is accompanied by correspondence starting in March 1978 with a request for a duplicate registration document for the original registration of CYE 140. The application was ultimately successful because the accompanying V5C, for the same registration number, records the date of first registration as 26.6.78.

£8,000 - 10,000
€8,900 - 11,000

As with all Lots in the Sale, this Lot is sold 'as is/where is' and Bidders must satisfy themselves as to the provenance, condition, age, completeness and originality prior to bidding.
