Unmolested Original Red and Blue Paint on Brass !!
A FANTASTIC example of a very early piece of American Motorcycle and Bicycle History, Excelsior-Henderson Motorcycle Company
In late 1917, the original Henderson Motorcycle Company was sold to Excelsior
owner Ignaz Schwinn, becoming "Excelsior-Henderson." The new
Excelsior-Henderson company was folded into Schwinn's Excelsior Motor
Mfg. & Supply Company located in Chicago, Illinois.
The Henderson 'DeLuxe' marked the first production year under the new
ownership of Schwinn, and the DeLuxe sported a new tank logo featuring
an Excelsior style "X" denoting Henderson's new parent company, Excelsior Schwinn.
Henderson's founder, William G. Henderson left the Excelsior-Henderson company in 1920, starting the Ace Motor Corporation which built high-performance inline four cylinder motorcycles until 1927 when they were purchased by Indian. William Henderson's departure was soon followed by Charles "Red" Wolverton who became the chief test-rider for Ace Motor Corp.
The Henderson Streamline models KJ and KL were produced from 1929
through 1931. By the 1920s Henderson was a large supplier of police
motorcycles, but by 1929 when the Great Depression hit, motorcycle sales
plummeted. On March 31, 1931 Ignaz Schwinn made the announcement that
the company would immediately cease opereations.
