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!

Rare Factory Correct Tankshift 1965 Panhead Electra Glide

OK, here is a photo of my next project bike in basic “as bought” condition. I plan to use this rare ex-police 1965 Harley Panhead – rare because it came from the factory with 3 1/2 gallon tanks and handshifter set up.

Rare 1965 Harley Panhead Tank-Shifter

This was the last year for actual tankshifters, as the 1966 Shovelhead came with the handshifter mounted on the down tubes. This one has been repainted a few times and has had some parts swapped out since it came off service as a police motorcycle.

Subscribe to American Iron Magazine to follow a series or articles on this bike later in the year.
