Erwin Weiss, chief engineer for Excelsior 1915 raced on the boards as well! What a long interesting life this dude had. The bit about "inventing ' the motorcycle clutch maybe challenged!
Yup, I think the clutch thing is a misunderstanding of some sort. Harley had a clutch at least a year prior. Could be he designed the Excelsior clutch of the first Excelsior 3-speed.
