From an article here:

http://www.bikeexif.com/art-deco-custom-motorcycle

The machine is apparently based on a 1930 Henderson—presumably the 100 mph (160 km/h) Streamline model—and was built in 1936 by a gent called O. Ray Courtney. Today the bike is owned by Frank Westfall of Syracuse, a motorcycle collector and local identity, who was seen happily riding this extraordinary motorcycle around the showgrounds. According Mortillaro, “The craftsmanship is absolutely stunning and it’s surely more of a museum piece than a daily rider. Frank has obviously spent an incredible amount of time meticulously restoring and rebuilding the bike to its current gorgeous state.”

Did you ever see that bike that had the Dodge Viper engine. It has 2 wheels in front and two in the back which look to be about 1ft apart. The bike balances itself and the wheels kinda flex to both stay down when you lean. I saw it years ago as a prototype. Probably never got actually built.

doesn't look like a comfortable riding position... does look pretty cool though.

Cool bike... but is that an oil leak in the 2nd photo?!

A couple of Arlen Ness bikes at the Motorcycle Hall of Fame (near Columbus, OH) in 2008...

Wow. Not practical, but very nice to look at. The yellow is my favorite.
