    Ziggy picked up a pair of 841's at Dixon last year that appeared to be race bikes of some sort, lots of modified speed stuff inside, different bearing & pistons etc. Sputhe crawled all through the stuff, someone had spent a lot of time and effort on those engines, lots of modifications and some great workmanship

    I would be anxious to see an Excelsior thread get started. I've been working on my '16 Ex and taking pictures of the motor, and trans work as I go. I plan to re-paint the bike as I've never been happy with paint work. I'll probably start a thread on the AMCA site as this forum is basically a Harley site. No offense, I love Harleys and this is a fantastic forum for H-Ds with a lot of very knowledgable people. Just not so much for Excelsiors.

    Those emblems were used from 1942-1946.

    But I have read, also as Chris mentioned previously, that they all went to military contracts... and I didn't think the military spec would include tank emblems???

    I'm sure you're right Pisten-Bully, but I know a lot of 841s have been civilianized, like the Harley XA. There was a fellow in Orlando that had an overchromed, civilian 841 that had those emblems.

    hey guys,thanks for the feedback! so i did a bit of digging and found those badges on the same era indians...............but still scratching my head on the "why"..........could this be one of the "essential" bikes i read about during war time? this bike is totally odd to me and i love learning,thanks for any and all info!
