Custom Art Deco-era Henderson Motorcycle

When we saw pictures of this recently restored art-deco custom built back in 1936, we felt we needed to share them with you.

A 1930 KJ Henderson provides the platform for the sculpted design originally built by O. Ray Courtney, and it’s powered by an air-cooled inline four-cylinder engine. It has a sister bike built on a 1930s Indian.

Courtney’s Henderson was resurrected by its current owner, Frank Westfall from Syracuse, NY, who showed it at the Rhinebeck Grand National Meet last June. Not just a museum piece, the bike was ridden around the meet’s grounds over the weekend by its enthusiastic owner.

More photos after the jump.

While it’s obviously not a practical machine, its curvaceous art-deco-era bodywork is absolutely stunning
