Hi ---

My list of Henderson serials shows two in the low 29000 range for 1928
models, so this one is reasonable as as 1928.

On the two models for 1929, the early '29 Henderson (De Luxe) was similar to
the 28; it could be argued that Ex was trying to use up the De Luxe parts
before launching the Streamline. However, the situation with the Super X
argues against that explanation. The early '29 Super adopted the drop-center
rims and 4.00 tires. That change meant a new frame and numerous other
changes. If Ex were just tying to use up parts, why redesign the Super for a
couple months.

When I purchased this bike, I was told by previous owner it was a 1929. I've
had several people comment that 1928 was the last year of the Deluxe
Henderson, and I have questioned whether my bike is a '28 or '29. My engine
number is D28441, which goes beyond seriel number references for a
Deluxe. I did find something interesting the other day in the book the
"Golden Age of the Fours" by T.A. Hodgdon. On page 55, it shows a Deluxe
Henderson with the following text, "Larger tires (27 x 4.00) and valanced
front fenders were featured improvements on 1929 Henderson Deluxe.

This model, introduced in September, 1928, was produced as shown until it
was superseded by the mid-year announcement of new streamline KJ model,
which was unveiled in spring of 1929".
I hope I'm not opening a can of worms, as I appreciate any info and assistance
on this bike.

P.S.-Mark/Marty, would still appreciate possible carb types used.
Mark, he said Deluxe, not KJ. Didn't the 29 Deluxe still have the earlier style
manifold and carb? The DLX70 is definately 29KJ. Marty

It should be a schebler DLX 70 (Brass) two flange on early 29's and later a
DLX 76(pot metal)two flange on later machines. Hope this helps. Check out
post 2289 on this page I have adapter plates in stock to convert to the more
common three flange carb set up.


Could someone tell me what the correct carburator would be for 1929
Henderson Deluxe four cyclinder?
