Excelsior #004 – SOLD!
Excelsior #004 was built over a 2 year period, and was finished in November 2011. I have named this bike “Albert”. I don’t name every bike, but race bikes sometimes need a name.
Albert has yet to be fired up. Just add gas and oil. I figured the new owner might want to be on hand for that occasion.
Albert would like to move out of my shop. He wants to go to a home where he can be more appreciated . . . as a work of art. He wants to be on display!
Selling price: $129,000 (US)
Albert sold today, March 5, 2013.
Mike Mayberry’s Testimonial
Albert’s new owner wrote to me the following: “Just wanted to let you know that Albert has arrived safely and is quickly making friends in Denver. We uncrated him yesterday morning and the four of us stood around for a good hour just staring and gawking. Wow, what an absolutely beautiful machine you have created. Pictures and reviews clearly do not describe the level of perfection and detail that have gone into this bike. It is possibly the most beautiful machine I have ever seen. I am proud and honored to have this work of art in my collection. Anyway, thank you again for your patience while I arranged shipment, and thank you for creating such a masterpiece.”
