Excelsior's Consort first appeared in 1953 as the F4, with Villiers 4F engine and two-speed gearbox, changing to the 6F unit for 1956 when a plunger-suspended version joined the range.

The Consorts continued in production until the end of 1957 when they were replaced by the new Consort CA8, a more up-to-date design featuring a telescopic front fork and swinging-arm frame.

A year-or-so later a rigid-framed (F4F) version was reintroduced and the two Consorts continued until the rigid model was dropped in 1963, to be followed a year later by the swinging-arm type.
