Sorry, didn't attached pics to my last post. Here are a few of them.
Again, my grandfather was badge #7 Beverly Hills PD. He was one of the first two bike cops on the force. Died of complications after being shot but it took a couple of years after the incident before he passed.
I have his uniform & badge, but not the department issued revolver. Would like to find a Henderson that doesn't come with a large 'ransom' as I know they aren't cheap. It would be neat to have his stuff and pics with a Henderson to pass down to my son. His son (my father) passed last year so I ended up with my Grandfather's police items. It would be even more fun to ride a Henderson occasionally knowing that my Grandfather rode one daily. (now I know where I got the bug for bikes and fast vehicles!)
A little side note about the BH PD... One of the forensic investigators in the Beverly Hills PD that found me this pic informed me that the reason the force went with the Henderson was because it was the only vehicle that could keep up with the celebrities driving Duisenbergs of the day. My Grandfather is on the bike to the right side of the photo. We have other pics but this forum only allows one pic per post.
Let me know if you know of a 24 to 28 for sale w/o mortgaging my house!
