    Every part has a different casting number.

    I understand that Chris, just would like to know if it belongs to henderson, excelsior or ?. I think the HX may tell what brand motorcycle.

    Thanks

    Re: Casting Number

    I have seen the HX prefix in Henderson, and Excelsior parts books, but that means nothing. In this case, a picture would be much more valuable if you're trying to identify a part.

    Re: Casting Number

    I looked at some of my Ex parts books again, and the only place I commonly see the 'HX' prefix is on Ex/Hen made sidecar parts. Again, a picture would be best.

    I finally got a pic in the origional post,
    Axeric, you may be right sidecar footboard.

    Thanks.

    Re: Casting Number

    That's a pretty standard Excelsior, and Schwinn built Henderson motorcycle footboard. We always called the casting an 'airplane', for obvious reasons. I believe that forging/casting went from 1915 to the end of production in 1931, although I have seen a slight variation in some of them, and suspect it was for the Super-X. T my knowledge, none of the American motorcycle manufacturers did their own castings, or forgings as that takes a huge commitment, and outlay of resources to do work like that.

    Thanks for the info, do you think the coils are for the same, I found these last spring in a wooded area near me, I am headed back there next spring to see if theres more. Funny part is there are no roads closer than a mile from where this stuff was found.

    Thanks Again Axeric.

    Re: Casting Number

    I can't think of a motorcycle that used coils like that. Perhaps they are Model T coils, and the wooden box that usually enclosed them, rotted away.

    Not model T. it is the same size as a early electric J model harley, except 1 end cap has a bulge as seen in the pic. did excelsior have an electric model?

    thanks
