New re-acquisition. 2000 Excelsior-Henderson. I bought this from a friend in 2005 and owned it for 9 years, then sold it. It came back available last month so I bought it back.

ES2 coming along:

It's starting to look much better:





Starting and running well thanks to fitting a 3.5 cutaway rather then the specified 4. I suspect the original was for economy rather than performance.

Still a few jobs to get it on the road so I can assess what needs to be done over the winter apart from cosmetics. But so far I'm pleased with progress.

Here’s a tale; put my AJS up for sale and had an enquiry from a gent who’s name was was the same as a previous owner in the buff log book.  A bit of checking and it turns out he actually was the third owner, so naturally he would like to buy the bike.  For £500 less than the (fair) asking price.Confused

ES2 and Performance are not two things I would have put together. LOL

In their day, they were seen as a sporting single but by the time mine was made they were outclassed by the parallel twins. A chap called Mike Pemberton has made some of them fly but I wouldn't want the Norton to be faster than the V50.....

Well the Manx and International went quite well, not really so different.
I always liked the ES2.

I've always fancied a cammy Norton but the prices are ridiculous for what is essentially an ES2 with a leaky engine......

Had a spin on this recently  and ended up trading my Deauville,  I spent time on the brakes (seals and seized pistons) but reckon it needs a front Disc  (warped). Steers well wet or dry , nice gear change and ratios  a little asthmatic at the top end  but plenty of low down grunt  (unlike my 750 Breva!)
