Nice photo. The bike is a Model K four-cylinder Henderson, made in the USA. The model ran from 1920 to 1927 with a number of changes, but it's hard to date it from the front-on view.

Does this fit with your expectations?

Cheers

Leon

Indeed, its going to be something along these lines, but with sidecar attached.

You guys are the best!  This is a pic of my wifes grandfather on his bike.  I never met the man,
but have always wondered what he rode. Thanks for the info.
