1934 Excelsior Ski-Car
Thanks to Carrick Watson for this….. I shall let Carrick’s words describe it…

“Here is an Excelsior that you have not seen! My son Colin is showing how to use it. It was made in 1934 by the Excelsior Motorcycle Factory with a view to using it for board racing round an Indoor wooden track. My father got it when he was Manager of Rossleigh in Edinburgh in 1934 as a sample, we kept it until 2006. I used it a lot when young, you steered with your feet and pushed yourself along with the poles, great for muscle building !! Only problem ? NO brakes !!

Called a ‘Ski Car’, It has a badge on the seat naming it and giving the patent number It never took off, and I have never seen another. It has now been gifted to Glasgow Transport Museum
