Vietnamese mechanic’s homemade 1930 Henderson KJ Streamline motorbike
The powerful Henderson Motorcycle came like a bang in the early 1912 and disappeared in a lull by the year 1931. In its short life-term, the motorcycle company became the first choice for law enforcement personnel and two-wheeler enthusiasts who liked a powerful machine on the road. Well, 1930 Henderson KJ Streamline has become a collectibles dream now, and only a few are left. What you see in the video below is not a Henderson KJ Streamline motorcycle, but a replica made to look and sound exactly like it.
This lookalike is the craftsmanship of a mechanic from Vietnam who has converted a Honda Shadow 600 into this sublime looking machine which drives like a charm. Not much information is available on how he actually made the conversion, but it is clear that it took him around one month’s time to do so.
You can clearly see that the fully driveable machine has electronically controlled kickstand and fenders which make it look absolutely cool. Maybe, you can even say that the machine rivals some of those custom batmobiles created by DIYers.
As I said, there is not much information on this custom machine, so leave your imagination do the talking on what it would be actually to drive this motorbike.
