Henderson Motorcycles

 

 

To describe the Henderson fours built between 1911 and 1931 as the Rolls-Royce of motorcycles would be an understatement. The Rolls-Royce Silver Ghost may have dominated the Austrian Alpine Rally in 1913, but in the same year, a 1912 model Henderson had just completed circumnavigating the globe, a journey of over 18,000 miles, in ten months and the first motorcycle ever to do so.  Over a period of almost two decades the Henderson continued to break both endurance and speed records.  During the prohibition years it was the preferred patrol bike of U.S. Police Departments.  The Henderson was without doubt, from beginning to end, the finest motorcycle in the world
