So you don't know the difference between 63 and 64-67? Am I going to have to kick you aside for others to come up with the right answer?

Of course I know the difference between the 63 and 64 headlight bucket. In 1964 the pivoting arms were removable.

That isn't what I was after. Ok, this is something I should just give you because you got the right year and maybe those arms are removable I don't even know. But there is such a big difference between the two I am going to stick to my guns until you get it.

Brian the early 63 were made of fiberglass but I can't tell if these are them. My screen is so small and I need new glasses the pics look like stamps!
If they are fiberglass they are pretty rare!

Actually Brian the late 63's were metal as well but I think they carried a 64 date number. We need a real Vette expert to tighten this one up. You guys didn't buy the ice cream story huh?
Here is one that might give you guys a twitch. Who manufactured these bicycles?

Your close Dinger. Actually it was her boy friend, Harley Davidson. I have not seen this exact one before but the 1918 model I saw had a rear wheel center stand.

My brother had a few flathead Harleys we restored, had a lot of fun with them. Riding a suicide shift foot clutch flathead torque monster is a GAS!

Back a number of years ago he broke his leg BAD in a fall from a ladder and up and sold the last one he had along with most of his Harley stuff he had. The Harley Davidson museum actually bought a few super nice rare pieces he had. I don't remember what, I think some dealer ball point pens were among them but don't remember anything else.

The cool thing was the last bike was a brilliantly designed (all credit goes to my brother) 74 flatty in a soft tail frame. We put the upper bar and seat stay from a 1939 so it had a pogo seat. We took the fender braces off the rear and put them on the inside of the fender so it REALLY looked like a hard tail! The master cyl for the brakes was under the transmission with a cable going up to the handle bars. The front disc was hidden behind a large drum brake looking "backing plate" that the caliper was mounted to. He did a hell of a job on that bike. When he sold it a guy on ebay he road it one last time to the trucking company in a nearby town and off it went to the other side of the US. The guy sent a photo of the bike he had in the late sixties and it looked like my brother had built his bike using that photo! It was scary how many details my bother had matched on that bike.

Well, since we are on the subject of Harley's. What was the last street legal application H-D used the flathead for?

Well, since H-D has always been so technically advanced - I'll guess its all of the 2012 models.
