Art Deco 1930 KJ Henderson Custom Motorcycle

Looking like a cross between something you’d find in a museum and something you’d find in the Batcave, this custom-made 1930 KJ Henderson Custom is the pride and joy of one Frank Westfall of Syracuse, NY. Underneath all that homespun bodywork is an inline-4 air-cooled engine, though reportedly it’s a little tough to handle. No matter, because really, the less time this beauty has to spend near careless drivers the better.

Among the changes Frank made were taking the bike’s original two-tone color scheme and instead going all black. It was first unveiled at the Rhinebeck Grand National Meet in 2010, and the ooh-and-ahh reverberations are still being felt.
