Very rare occurrence in the motorcycle industry. When in 1931 Excelsior-Henderson owner Ignaz Schwinn decided to stop production of all motorcycles, the company orders book was full. He was afraid that the great depression would last too many years and preferred to focus on his core business, bicycle manufacturing. A shame when you think that Henderson was producing since 1912 some of the best 4-cylinder motorcycles, adopted as much by sport riders than police departments because they were faster than anything on the roads.
Armed with a twelve camel hair brush as his main tool, internationally renowned artist Scott Jacobs immortalizes Henderson with this extremely realistic close-up of a 1913 Model B. A high caliber piece of art destined to become very popular with collectors and bike enthusiasts. The edition size is strictly limited to 50 examples of giclees on canvas 22´x 32” plus 5 APS and 5 HCS (framing adds approximatively 7” in each direction). Pre-publication orders will receive a discounted price of $1250 (custom framing additional). To order, email email@example.com or call Ron Copple 303-431-4453 Scott Jacobs Studio.
