Excelsior #005 and #008
Paul is building two Excelsior Boardtrackers at the same time. Below are several photos from the projects.
I’m really enjoying working on 2 Excelsiors at the same time, #005 and #008! I get to keep #008 for myself!
Still hot! The rear engine mounts have been nickel-silvered to the eccentric housing.
Two Excelsior front ends complete with front hubs. The rims need painting before the wheels can be laced up.
Two sets of tanks are coming along very nicely.
Holding the gas tank on the surface table with an angle block so I can file smooth the welds on the edges of the tank.
Looking at the top of the mockup motor… the cylinder heads are old Ruby Racer ones.
Leaf spring detail on Excelsior #005.
Rear hub getting its 40 spoke holes… almost time to build the wheels!
If you wish to follow the process on these projects, Paul is posting all of the photos on his Excelsior Facebook Page. And if you “Like” his page, you’ll be able to see regular updates.
