An Early Henderson Four

1912 was the first production year for the Henderson motorcycle, produced in Detroit, Michigan, and this is a nice example from that year, with a four cylinder inline “inlet over exhaust” engine rated at 7hp (57 ci). This model, with the distinctive cylindrical gas tank, was built just one year, after which the tank was changed to the flat sided type found in all later models.  Above the gas tank is a small acetylene tank, for the headlamp.  Photo courtesy of prewar Walt.
