Doug has fully restored this motorcycle to ‘jaw-dropping” excellence. In addition to the stunning visual full view, close inspection of individual parts offer a wealth of interest. Some details:

1. Doug could not stop talking about the hand painted pinstriping on the bike by a “zen-like” pinstriping master. The pinstriping was so exacting that the painter had to pause often to get in the right mental state to continue.

2. The ammeter was one of the hardest original parts to find. After many years searching, Doug was able to find a correct piece on e-bay.

3. The bike sports a Kansas motorcycle license plate that is correct for it’s original year. After searching for years for it, he finally procured one. A noted license plate collector indicated that it was only one of seven he has ever seen.

4. The front head-tube sports a Schwinn logo, The story of the relationship between Schwinn, Excelsior, and Henderson will be of interest to all vintage motorcycle enthusiasts
