Schultz's favorite motorcycles were the 4-cylinder Hendersons. Manufactured in Detroit from 1912 to 1931, they were the largest and fastest motorcycles of their time and appealed to sports riders and police.

Schultz has collected and restored six of the Henderson motorcycles. Along with more than 50 years of preserving vintage motorcycles, he has written the books "Henderson Those Elegant Machines" and "Henderson Supplement for Henderson Motorcycles," which contains a forward by comedian Jay Leno.

Admission for Schultz's program is free and a reception will follow.
