1916 Excelsior Motorcycle Boardtrack Racer Info Needed

Hi all:

I am researching this particular 1916 Excelsior racer for a future article in Motorcycle Rides & Culture magazine.

It was a well known West Coast racer in the teens and twenties, and was later owned by Rusty Kay. It was restored in the early 1970s by Dave “Huggy Bear” Hansen of The Shop.

It was on display at the Peterson museum for a few years. All info, details and history on it is appreciated.
