Price on Request

This is an extremely rare specimen. It is considered the "Duesen­berg" of early American motorcycles. A powerful V twin- cylinder engine rated at 8 to 10 horsepower was produced at the G. W. Curtiss Manufacturing Company in Hammondsport, New York.

Glenn Hammond Curtiss (May 21, 1878 - July 23, 1930) was an American aviation and motorcycling pioneer and a founder of the U.S. aircraft industry. He began his career as a bicycle racer and builder before moving on to motorcycles. As early as 1904, he began to manufacture engines for airships. In 1908, Curtiss joined the Aerial Experiment Association, a pioneering research group founded by Alexander Graham Bell at Beinn Bhreagh, Nova Scotia, to build flying machines.

William Henderson was the grandson of Alexander Winton who founded one of the earliest automakers in the United States.

1913 Henderson 4

# 5046 - 1913 Henderson 4

$225,000

Built in Detroit, Michigan from 1912 to 1931.

The four cylinder model has a displacement of 965 CC and is rated at 7HP.

Remarkable 65” wheelbase and a weight of 310 pounds.

Model year 1913 was not only the second year of production for Henderson, but also the first year for the new “square tank” look after the first-year torpedo tank models. The chassis remained very long though, which provided much-needed stability for the terrible roads of the day and it proved good enough to be the first motorcycle to circle the globe in 1912-13 under Carl Stearns Clancy.

William Henderson had been obsessed with the idea of building a motorcycle since he was a child. His father was the vice president of the Winton Motor Carriage Company, and Alexander Winton, founder of Winton Motors, was William’s grandfather.

1909 Indian 5 HP Twin

#5052 - 1902 Hercules #126

Price on Request

2.5 HP, 56" wheelbase, 125lbs. The earliest known example of this extremely rare museum quality motorcycle.

Produced by G. H. Curtiss Manufacturing Company Hammondsport, New York.

According to Dale Axlerod, the premier Curtiss historian and expert, "126" represents 1 - the first and earliest run of Hercules engines. 2 - manufactured circa 1902. 6 - the sixth engine produced.

Curtiss was born in Hammondsport, New York, in 1878 and, from a young age, he exhibited strong mechanical ability. In his teens, he was a champion bicycle racer with a keen interest in all things fast. By the time he was in his mid- 20s, Curtiss was manufacturing his own motorcycle designs under the name “Hercules”. The G. H. Curtiss Manufacturing Company competed with the likes of motorcycle powerhouses Harley-Davidson and Indian, and Curtiss often defeated them in races.

1920 Indian PowerPlus with Sidecar

#5069 - 1920 Indian PowerPlus with Sidecar

$85,000

61 cubic inch 1000cc 16hp.

The Indian PowerPlus was produced from 1916 to 1924 by the Hendee Manufacturing Co. and was designed by Charles Gustafson.

The motorcycle offered here for sale sports every conceivable option including a very rare factory produced and period correct electric starter, Corbin speedometer, electric lights, horn, ammeter, and more.

A nine-year documented restoration was completed by Wilson B. Plank for Edward C. Jameson. A well written thirty five page folder with over fifty color photos and diagrams which document the nine-year restoration is available for viewing and will remain with the motorcycle.

The PowerPlus was a revolution in Indian design, as the company switched from its original F-head of 1901 to a side-valve design in 1916. Indian’s new chief engineer, Charles Gustafson, had designed the first side-valve motorcycle built in the U.S. for Reading-Standard in 1907 and knew the layout to have many advantages, including easier construction and service and cooler running of its valves.

Cannonball Baker proved the point by winning the Three Flags endurance run on a prototype PowerPlus in August 1915, riding from Vancouver to Tijuana in a record 3 days, 9 hours and 15 minutes. That was an astounding time for a 1,650- mile trip on dirt roads, and it proved conclusively that the PowerPlus was one tough machine.

This bike won top awards at the 2003 Annual Indian motorcycle show and the 2004 Portsmouth Abbey show.

1921 Ner A Car 221CC

#5077 - 1921 Ner A Car 221CC

$22,000

1921-1925 Produced in Syracuse, New York and Sheffield, England.

Financed by razor maker King C. Gillette. Advertised as "300 miles for a dollar" and "85 to 100 miles per gallon".

Built in Syracuse, New York, and Sheffield, England, from 1921-1925.

Advertised as “300 miles for a dollar” and “85 to 100 miles per gallon”. The design was fascinating, as it featured hub-center steering. The step-through design and bodywork kept riders clean, allowing them to wear ordinary clothes on their way to work or local shops. Production started in 1921, and the Model “A” had a 221cc 2-stroke engine that produced 2.5 HP.

In the fall of 1922, Erwin “Cannonball” Baker rode a Ner-A-Car from New York City to Los Angeles -it took him just over 174 hours. Production of the Neracar in the U.S. ended in 1927.

Varying sources online suggest that, of the 16,500 Ner-A-Cars ever built, only about 100 remain.

1909 Pierce 4 Cylinder

#5080 - 1909 Pierce 4 Cylinder

$150,000

First year of an American four cylinder motorcycle. Rated at 707 CC, this 275 pound single speed machine boasted a 60 mile per hour top speed.

Sold at the Steve McQueen auction.

Unfortunately, they cost more to produce than they could sell for. That put the Pierce motorcycle company into financial difficulty and bankrupted the motorcycle division, in 1914.

In 1909, George Pierce debuted the first Pierce Four, a radically different motorcycle than any other available on the market at that time. The oversized, four-inch diameter frame tubing offered a distinct look but came with an advantage by incorporating required fluids into the chassis, while cutting production costs. Unlike the FN inspiration machines, the Pierce relied on a T- head cylinder design, with the inlet and exhaust valves on opposite sides of the combustion chamber.

1911 Pierce 4 Cylinder

#5082 - 1911 Pierce 4 Cylinder

The Pierce auto company built prestigious luxury automobiles with a reputation on par with Rolls-Royce, and its four-cylinder motorcycles were at the very top of the market. Percy Pierce, son of company founder George N. Pierce, was a factory competition driver who took control of the Pierce Cycle Company, in 1907, with the intention of adding motorcycles to the company's roster.

Fondly known and advertised as the “Gentleman's Machine”.

Manufactured from 1909 to 1915.

The Yale motorcycle was built by the Consolidated Manufacturing Company, Toledo, Ohio after they acquired the rights to the California motorcycle.

George Wyman's 50-day ride across the U.S. in 1903 on a California was the first such journey by any motor vehicle. The owners of the California Motor Company thought it a perfect time to sell out and made a deal with the Consolidated Manufacturing Company. There were copyright issues with the California name so the brand name was changed to Yale-California. The first Yale was identical to the California, but in 1906, a much improved design was revealed.
