The Most Beautiful Motorbike in the World

By

7th Mar, 2012

If ever I had the choice of owning any two-wheeled mode of transport in the world, I’m pretty sure I would pick this one (if I could reach the handle bars). It’s a one-off custom art deco beauty originally built in 1936 by O. Ray Courtney, based on a 1930 KJ Henderson and is powered by an inline four cylinder [boy code]. The bike was fully restored and rebuilt by a talented man from New York, Frank Westall, who also owns the bike and brings it to various automobile gatherings where these pictures were taken.

This should have been Batman’s bike…
