Florian - wow another nice original bike and another US Gauge ammeter! If I'd known you had access to so many unmolested originals I would have visited last time we were in Europe. I haven't been to eastern Austria, but we really enjoy the Tyrol area and drive 200/198 (in one direction or the other) between Füssen and the Bodensee every time we're over.
Anyway, I've never personally seen a nice original 27 dash. My 27 Henderson has the wrong switch. The correct switch is a large round switch. I'm not sure if this is the same as was used on 25 and 26 Super/Xs but for Henderson it was only used on 1927 models. I'll attach a photo of a period ad showing the 27 Super/X dash. No debate on the ammeter in 27, it was a Weston. Note the speedo on 27s was the Stewart JM and only used that one year ... Perry


Hello Perry,

Thank you for you respond - attched there is another picture of a ´28 dash with US gauge ammeter - this one should also be quite original - only the 2 swiches seem to be modified.

I have no pictures of a ´27 dash and i thought they were the same.....

Please let me know what the difference between ´27 and ´28 dashboards is - I have no idear....
a picture would be great of course!

Excelsior Greetings from Austria / Europe, florian

Florian - your subject says 1927 dashboard but the photo is of a 1928 dashboard. I can't help with either but you might want to clarify which you really need.
Nice photo of the '28 dash. Interesting to see a US Guage ammeter. Another datapoint in the US Gauge versus Weston debate ... Perry

Hello Henderson Enthusiasts!

Sorry for another Super X posting, but there still is nothing useful on the web for SuperXers up to now!

I am looking for the dash which can be seen on the picture attached - if anyone knows one of these that might be sold - please let me know.

Thank You!
