    Thanks for the very good feedback. Indeed it was a labor of love. This book was only possible in self publishing. The costs and time for a high quality book with this format and amount of pages are very high. ( you can compare it withe restoration of a motorcycle) At the end Bob and I l provided a book with the complete story. In the meantime we have orders from around the world. The last ones were from Australia and Japan...
    I did also the first book on on Board Track racing (Murderdrome) which is also worth to look at. It has nearly the same size of the American Excelsior book.

    We had several questions regarding the amount of books. We have less than 250 books left. That`s it

    I have to say I am greatly impressed by this book and the amount of effort put into it. Great Job! Now I just need more time to peruse it.

    Glad to say I received my VERY well packed copy today. The book looks of excellent quality and should provide me with plenty of reading to take me through the upcoming long winter nights. Thanks for the excellent quality and look forward to reading it. It's all your fault Eric for teasing me with the German copy.

    We have bad news. We tried to make things easier for the U.S. friends. The shipping to Bob Turek to the U.S. was lost. I was also astonished that this could happen by a shipping company. This was a big amount for a limited print of 400!
    So we have less for sale. This is an bad impact.

    That is bad news! Was it a quantity of books?

    I bought the Excelsior book at our Raalte International AMCA Meet in May, read it, and reviewed it for the AMCA magazine but not yet published. Executive summary: buy it while you still can.

    Good advice. That book has it all; beautiful printing, previously unpublished pictures, and text, and devoted research that comes from a deep commitment, and love for the Excelsior brand.

    If I calculate the books which were lost (confirmed now) and the books we had to give away for libraries,and people who helped, we have less than 320 books for sale. We had a lot of orders and around max. 145 books are available
