Are you referrring to Excelsior/Henderson?

Excelsior/Henderson was re-born and after a few years just could not make it. Someone bought the rights to make bikes but I have heard a word for a couple of years.

The only other mortorcycle maker in Minnesota is Polaris Industries. They make the Victory and I believe right here in Minnesota. The Victory is beginning to be a great bike. Lots of people riding them now.

Vipers old office in New Hope was right across the street from mine. I had to hear them every afternoon testing bikes up and down the street. Good looking bikes. They moved about 4 months ago to Big Lake MN about 30 miles north-west.
