Well crafted and excellent dimensional fit for the person and for the house.
The first Excel 2000 remained in serviceable condition for 17 years.
The weaknesses of the Excel are in the crossing members that form an "X" just below the seat. They will crack at the midpoint of connection. The wall thickness of the crossing pipes is too thin. The large wheel treads wear too quickly, especially the originally equipped wheels. Replacement wheels have a better wear factor. Small front wheels are great for wear. Never replaced. Finally, the brake handles stick out too far. Many knocks on door jambs.
