With such a unique combination of artful aesthetics and innovative features, The 1930 Henderson Custom motorcycle is already an icon. This timeless design blurs the lines between timeless art deco aesthetics and modern flexibility. The vehicle is based on a K.J Henderson model dating back to 1930, as its name might suggest.

Owner Frank Westfall restored the motorbike to perfection, but he made a few additional modifications. As opposed to restoring the factory 2-tone finish, he decided to go for a more elegant monochromatic paint job, which he performed himself. One of the most striking features of this design is definitely the rounded front, as well as the wide seat and dashboard, almost reminiscent of a vintage automobile. The seat was clearly built with comfort in mind, and it is an entirely different concept when compared to many later motorcycle designs, which always aimed to slim things down. Because of its unusual shape, at least by today’s standard, some might think that this motorcycle is a bit intimidating to ride. However, the learning curve is not as steep as you might imagine, and the pay off is a fantastic experience. There is quite nothing like this motorcycle out there!
