Collector Frank Westfall stunned the crowds at the Rhinebeck Grand National Meet this spring when he unveiled the crown jewel of his collection: an art-deco inspired 1930 Henderson which was customized in 1936 with "Streamliner" bodywork by a designer named O Ray Courtney.

This art deco 1930 Henderson is sleek, immaculately maintained, and perhaps one of only a handful of authentic custom Henderson motorcycles dating back to this era. Back then, Henderson was one of America’s largest motorcycle manufacturers (next to Harley Davidson and Indian) until it went bankrupt in 1931 during the Great Depression. Today, a small and extremely rare handful of vintage models like this one are all that stand as a testament to the company’s legacy.
