I can't say I've ever seen one that big in my area - where they are just barely native species at the very north of their range. I see them up to about 30' or so. I imagine those tall heights are pretty old trees in the south of their range.
Note that I've only tried this so far with Black Locust, and only for a few years, but Martin Crawford uses this technique with nitrogen-fixing trees (Geoff Lawton too - I think it's him that calls them 'nurse trees'). I expect Honey Locust would respond the same way to coppicing, but don't know for certain. Also - as noted above, it is said not to have as much nitrogen-fixation.
