Linkert Q

Does anyone know about what year the throttle lever on Panheads was changed from brass to steel? Not the steel piece that screws onto the lever, but the lever itself.

If memory serves it was 1949. And I have a memory like a steel sieve. :mrgreen:

Chris!

So, when did they switch to aluminum?

(Probably another '65-ism.)
