1955 1955 excelsior autocycle excelsior autocycle 1955 With excelsior 98ccspryt engine (same as the brockhouse corgi). by 1955, when this excelsior was manufactured, the writing was already on the wall for autocycles. those new-fangled ‘mo-peds’ had just hit the showrooms, and old-fashioned cyclemotors and autocycles were no longer wanted by a public that had been waiting so patiently since the end of the war to buy new vehicles with modern designs. excelsior ceased production of its renowned autocycle the following year, so this is one of the last of its breed. as you can see below, it sports excelsior’s own engine, the spryt, which was also fitted to the brockhouse corgi motorcycle.
