Henderson Custom

Has this been posted? I have searched but have not seen it here so, what do you think?











Photos are from knucklebuster where there's more info.
I happen to love it, although I'd have made the seat smaller and black. Also, if you see it ridden you'll note a rather uncomfortable looking ergonomics problem which I believe could be helped by different bars.
Apologies if this has been discussed before.

Well, I have to jump in with both feet and say I like it, I like it a lot.

Not as a every day rider but a two wheel piece of art deco. a copy of the first air stream trailers or even Chrysler's air flow car.

It just fits my image of the 20-30s industrial/art movement in America. Thanks for posting, at least you wont get all the bullets.

Two wheel Nash Rambler?
Looks impractical but looks better than most of the boutique choppers I've seen.

Is that the reason your mom makes you live in the basement?

One part of me is saying that it is pure art of the highest order, the other part is vomiting.
