Really? Here are a couple of portraits from the side of the Henry Ford we usually talk about here:

Cool pic of a really odd motorcycle :-) The passenger was seated in front of the driver on the 12's, it was started by a crank like a car & there was no transmission, just a clutch. The four cylinder engine was supposed to be flexible enough to handle all speeds in high.
From 1913 on they were more conventional.

Ken - Great photo of a neat cycle, however, that really doesn't look like Henry Ford to me,........harold

I'd have to agree with Harold that's not Henry on the motorcycle!

I have a 27 Henderson and their is plenty torque to do what ever you want in high gear. It will pull a hill in high as well as my modern HD. Great photo

Sure it'll pull the hills in high, but starting from standing still in high in a hill would be hard on the clutch, I think. The other early single speed motorcycles had pedals to get them rolling.

Yes I do believe you're right! That's not Henry after all.
We've got a 13 Henderson in the family. It's quite a bike, difficult to drive but spectacular to look at! Here's a picture. Note the license plate is close but is the wrong year. Can't find a 13.
