Morning all,
Have some questions to pose.
On the cover of one of Otis Spikers newsletters is a picture of Hoot Gibson, a famous silent movie cowboy on a Henderson Deluxe being flanked by two policemen, also on Henderson Deluxes.
These bikes are fitted with an auxilliary hand clutch that I had not seen before.
Otis writes on his description of the picture that the Deluxes were police bikes because they were fitted with this special hand clutch.
Has anyone out there seen one of these set ups??
Are there any still in existence??
How did it work?
