How big a deal was Henderson motorcycles a hundred years ago? Well, in 1913, the first circumnavigate the world on a motorcycle did it on a Henderson. Then, a Henderson broke the “Cannonball” Baker cross-country record by four days. Even automobile magnate Henry Ford bought one.
The Henderson De Luxe, introduced in 1922, was considered the best model available at the time, even favoured by police over Harley and Indian models. This particular version, expected to go for $60,000, comes with a sidecar by Goulding, the first American sidecar manufacturer.
