Antique Motorcycle Video 1924 Original Paint Henderson Deluxe

One of the more rare and unusual antique American motorcycles – the Henderson Deluxe in-line four cylinder motorcycle. This is a well sorted and good running original paint one.

These are great running, smooth and powerful motorcycles. Starts right up easy enough and idles well. The long pull back wheelbarrow style handlebars take some getting used to, especially when making wide turns at slow speeds. And no front brakes!
