Previously, there had been some conflicting information about the year Schwinn bought the original Excelsior manufacturing company. This web site formerly published 1905 as the purchase year and 1907 as the first year of production under Schwinn ownership. Recently when researching on the web, Ancient Alley discovered the purchase year as 1911 on the Schwinn web site. Accepting the Schwinn web site as being the higher authority for accuracy the Excelsior pages have been edited to read 1911 as the purchase year. Research has shown that the original Excelsior company, pre-Schwinn ownership, was indeed started in 1905 and began production in 1907.
