1929 Henderson Streamline ‘KJ’ – SOLD

For collectors, the Henderson KJ Streamline really needs no introduction. Even without its blue paint, this is already a beautiful looking Henderson KJ project and it is now up for offers.

The bike was never completed by Kevin but those who knew his love of this model, knew that he had collected parts for it since the 1970s – even digging them out of people’s gardens. His focus on collecting period correct pieces and his mechanical knowledge shows here in the quality of the parts and the restorations already undertaken. Kevin’s intention was to ride this bike when it was completed and this is relected in the calibre of what is on offer.

We have pulled the KJ parts together for display and viewing purposes and the engine has been loosly built up but the purchaser will need to undertake a rebuild.

However, Kevin’s massive long-term collecting for this project has resulted in a remarkably complete KJ project which includes:

  • a rare original aluminium tank,
  • a sand-blasted crank case with no cracks or welds
  • dashboard with full collection of meters including a Corbin speedo, cable, drive and ring gear,
  • a full set of the streamline cylinder barrels in near mint condition
  • Bullet style headlight
  • Timing gears and cogs that are in fantastic sharp condition
  • Correct and near perfect manifolds
  • Flywheel assembly
  • Bosch FF4 magnento
  • Front and rear mudguards/fenders (one stay is missing)
  • Horn
  • Switch
  • Henderson nuts and bolts
  • New JP pistons
  • Rebuilt battery box
  • Bearings and fork springs
  • Correct Handlebar internals
  • Correct footboards and connections (though found shortened and will need extending)
  • New (unfinished) exhaust

The project is not 100% complete and various smaller items will still need to be located by the buyer.

We have tried to photograph the parts fully here but as we are offering a single viewing day on Sunday November 23rd 2014,  we highly recommend that serious purchasers or their agent, come to look this over.

  1. I am in the market for a Henderson in similar condition to this one that sold. I do not see anywhere what this motorcycle eventually sold for. Could you tell me what the bike sold for, I am curious to know what I should be expecting to pay for a motorcycle like this. Thanks.
