Mar. 2, 2014 – AZUSA, Calif. — CSC Motorcycles announced today that its substantial collection of classic motorcycles has been made more significant with the acquisition of the Al Simmons Mustang collection.
CSC Motorcycles Chief Executive Officer, Steve Seidner, said “We’re proud to add this great Mustang collection to our existing stable of classic bikes. The Al Simmons collection is the most serious collection of Mustang motorcycles on the planet, and its acquisition is a major accomplishment that will allow us to further promote the small motorcycle concept put forth through our CSC bikes. All of this has been made possible by our CSC success. We believe CSC motorcycles are the bikes Mustang would be making today if they were still in business, and we plan to keep the Mustang legend alive. The Al Simmons collection, we believe, is the most comprehensive Mustang collection in the world. We plan to put it to good use in the motorcycle community.”
The Simmons Mustang collection was featured in a Motorcycle Classics magazine article last year. It includes 27 motorcycles representing all Mustang models, from the original 1947 two-stroke Colt to the ultra-rare three-wheeled Mustang DeliverCycle models. The bikes are all fully restored. In addition to the Mustang motorcycles, the collection includes original Mustang memorabilia and marketing materials.
“We’re very excited about this,” Seidner continued. “We’re going to promote our CSC motorcycle line with limited edition models based on motorcycles in our classic Mustang collection. We’ll display the classic Mustangs and our modern CSC motorcycles at vintage motorcycle shows and other events. Designing and manufacturing CSC Motorcycles and building our vintage bike collection are the most exciting things I’ve ever done.”
CSC Motorcycles’ heritage is directly traceable to the Mustangs manufactured in Glendale, California, in the ‘50s and ‘60s. The street-legal line of 150cc and 250cc CSC motorcycles are based on and take their styling cues from the original Mustangs, while meeting all current safety and emissions requirements. One of CSC’s advisors, Jim Cavanaugh, was the Mustang production superintendent in the original Mustang manufacturing facility.
The CSC vintage bike collection is currently on display at the CSC Motorcycles manufacturing facility in Azusa, California. For photographs and more information please contact CSC Motorcycles at info@CSCMotorcycles.com.
