I need a front wheel stand for my 1944 u model.I believe the correct stand for this year had a bracket or clamp on the the rear rod that bolted to the front fender to hold the stand up.Does any body know what the part # of that bracket or clamp is?

PA,that front stand you posted,is not the correct one for a 44u.Kurt has a correct one on his site,but it does not have the clamp on it that I am looking for.

The "U" shaped angle iron was replaced by the stamped stand in 1943. The catch is the same part used on civilian bikes through at least 1954.

I have the correct catch that bolts to the fender.I need the clamp that is on the fender stand,so that I can put a bolt through the catch and clamp to hold the fender up.Thanks for the picture Chris.

Never seen a part number for that clamp.
New stands would always include the clamp to replace the earlier style stand.
Hope this helps:

this is an early 1941 WL ( S.A.D )
"early" because of the short forks ....
"late" one has the long forks .

ya can see the font stand + the tubular luggage rack .

Yes , Kurt !
i just visited your website about this subject on this morning and fond the two "NEW" stands ...
really good stuff !!!! i think you sure will sell a lot ! last year , i have searched and searched all around the earth to finally find an ol'one for my 42 ELC ....i will not tell you the horrible price :oops: i paid for ....

why don't you add the tubular 1941 WL luggage carryer to your products ????
and also the 43 WLC blackout headlamp shroud ?

these are also parts you sure will sell a lot .

( anyway : your stuff is becoming best and best . really !!! )

Thanks Fran-6 for the Kudos........but I wasn't fishing for that.....it's always good to hear one though.

I was pointing out the part number compared to the one Pa has. His is the BT part number according to my books, but I can only find the late part number for the 45 WL/WLA stand as 49301-40
Is the 45 front stand early part number 3001-40?

This is one of those items that carried the same part number, but H-D changed the part.

As far as the luggage carrier, I thought someone already was producing a nice one.........no?
