CARBINE CYCLES. ZENITH-GRADUA MOTORS World's Best. Easy Terms arranged, Write for List. HENDERSONS, 40-42 Park St., SYDNEY,

The Farmer and Settler (Sydney) Tue 11 Feb 1913

...When the motor cycle originally came on the scene, Mr. T. W. Henderson, the senior principal, promptly slipped over to the Old Country and made himself acquainted with every move in the game. The firm's great feature is, as most cyclists know, the "Zenith-Gradua." It is just the sort of machine for sandy patches and black soil stretches. There's this about "Hendersons"; The principals are practical men and they employ several well-known cyclists to overhaul, test, and tune up every machine that comes into their hands, and when you get a bike from "Hendersons" it's going to play the game, as hundreds of wheelmen can testify...

Lachlander and Condobolin and Western Districts Recorder (NSW) Wednesday 5 August 1914
