This very early 1914-15 detroit model Henderson ‘long-tank’ project is an extremely rare and desirable collection that Kevin had been building on for many years. It includes an original hub in near perfect conditon, a complete original engine with carburetor attached and the parts for a second engine including manifolds. The fenders/mudguards are original along with the handlebars and various other parts. We are including a magneto, headlight, seat and early Corbin speedo with long cable. Once restored, this will be one of the world’s rare and desirable motorcycles.
Note that the front forks were made approximately 15 years ago and it is likely that Kevin built the tank. It is possible that the frame is one that Kevin modified from a slightly later model (extended to make it longer, see photo). The footboard has been recently cast.
This collection is being sold as seen in the photographs. There will be no viewing as the parts are now in storage.
This is being sold under blind auction. There has already been interest in this collection so we expect serious offers only. Please email us your offer in $AU by the 17:00 (AEST) deadline of September 30th, 2016 to firstname.lastname@example.org.
More information about this process can be found on the How to Purchase page. As usual, this is a ‘blind’ auction so we do not publicize the offers we receive or the sold price so please do not ask us for this.
