1913 Henderson Model B

With the popularity of the innovative Belgian F.N. four-cylinder machine, it was inevitable that American manufacturers would build something similar. Henderson was one of the earliest to jump on the bandwagon with a 57-cubic-inch four. This was the largest and fastest machine at the time, setting many records, including being the first motorcycle to circle the world, and was the favored bike by many police departments. Henderson sold out to Schwinn of bicycle fame in 1917, and the machines were now marketed under the Excelsior brand.
