One of the most expensive motorcycle’s available in the teens was the Henderson Four. The 1918 4-cylinder, 3-speed cost $325 alone without a sidecar, over $7,000 today, add another $1,500 or so for a sidecar. So without question if you were piloting one of the most luxurious machines around you had to dress the part, and how better to express your status than with a leather cape and a cigarette. Unfortunately we don't know if homeboy is missing an arm or just trying to keep his pimp hand warm, but in either case keeping your threads clean and your machine dirty remains a proper way to handle your business.
