1930
Super "X"
by
Excelsior Henderson


This machine is just as handsome as its big brother the 1929 "Streamline". Although only a twin cylinder forty-five cubic inch engine was used to propel the Super X, it sold very well over the period of its manufacturing.  Early on, the name Super X was associated with racing and winning. Unfortunately, this is one of the last of its breed, because in 1931 the company closed its doors. A slump in sales due to the Great Depression prompted Ignaz Schwinn to let go of Excelsior Henderson... forever.
