Excelsior Silver Comet 1930

Powered by a supercharged JAP 1000cc V-twin developing 100bhp Joe Wright took this machine to 163 mph at Tat, Hungary in 1930. Overheating proved a problem and shortly afterwards the project was abandoned.

The Sammy Miller Museum is an historically important collection of road and competition motorcycles which focuses on the golden age of the sport in the 1950s and 60s. The collection includes some of the most outstanding machines ever raced, and almost all are in running order. Many have been lovingly restored, and some have been left with their original patina.
