The point was and still is, you have continually rated different cafe bikes, choppers and stock bikes as to how well they were built and the end result compared to intent. Looks aside, the hours spent building this and still driving it are a work of art. Built in 1936, not in OCC shop yesterday, not some retro nostalgic bike builder's dream of what a retro should look like. Built in 1936 by some one who saw it as a work of art then. Yea Dick Tracy probably had both cars and bikes that looked like that then. It was built then with out the use of exhaust wrap, fat tires because they are the rage, plastic this and plastic that, but by an artisan, bending and shaping metal. I wouldn't want it but love to see something authentic once in a while. Beauty they say is in the eye of the beholder.
If Victory ever comes out with a scooter I can only imagine it will look just like that Henderson.
And if you like that, you'll most likely appreciate this Arlen Ness design as well... Smooth-Ness.
Sadly, we, few older "codgers", are the only ones who see a work of motorcycle art beyond chopping up an existing bike or connecting store bought farkels to create a new monstrosity.
