The motorcycling world loves a ‘barn find’—an old, obscure machine wheeled out of the woodwork for the first time. And this is one of the biggest revelations of recent months. It’s a 1930 Henderson that was customized before WW2 by a fellow called O. Ray Courtney and fitted with ‘streamliner’ bodywork.
Based on a 1930 K.J Henderson with an inline-4 air-cooled engine, all of the bodywork is custom and it’s the sort of thing that would have impressed even Ettore Bugatti. The Henderson Custom is owned and restored by Frank Westfall from Syracuse, New York. His first outing on the bike was to the Rhinebeck Grand National Meet in 2010.
