Bike is staged and ready to “show and tell” over the next two days. This will be the first of three bike shows I will be attending over the next several weeks. I’m thrilled to be able to display this bike and discuss all details to interested people.

Lookin good Chris!
Beautiful, I think the common folks will under-appreciate the level of detail and care that you’ve put into this. The stand looks too cool as well.

Do I have memories and stories of this dearly loved bike owned by our Grandfather Fred Hazen in Newcomb Township, Champaign County, ILL. in 1911 forward. We are honored to have Chris Tribbey as the new steward of the Tribbey-Hazen 1911 Excelsior Auto Cycle.
Perhaps you’ll feel the presence AND spirit of the Hazen men tapping, touching, loving this
family treasure. Three Hazen stewards: Fred Hazen; Keith M. Hazen, Katherine
Scott Reising (Hazen). Mantel passed to Chris Tribbey on Dec. 22, 2015. Paul Smith, a mutual friend, handed me off to Chris when I was vetting the world for the bike’s new owner. And we found just the right guy!! LET THE SHOW BEGIN AS FRED DEBUTS HIS NEXT LIFE IN THE 21ST CENTURY as the TRIBBEY-HAZEN 1911 Excelsior Auto Cycle. NICE,CHRIS. VERY NICE.
Hope to see you at the show….mid Saturdayish. or…. or…bloody mary’s at Iron Horse Hotel.
Beautiful and that stand is the icing on the cake. Great job, sir! Can’t wait to hear it run.
Outstanding effort and craftsmanship on your restoration of the 1911.
It was great getting to catch up with you.
