Howdy peoples, i'm just saying g'day from Melbourne Australia. I see that there is previous banter regarding the "B" in XLB's. I restored an XLB 15 years ago. I was very fortunate to get it in very original condition in relation to the parts. It came with luggage rack and metal panniers, panhead style.
Not including the previous forum posts, my collected information to date is that the "B" meant police/army or special issue. South East Asia seems to be the location for them. I've heard stories about army dudes bringing them back from the wars etc, but this is all hearsay. Yet to see documented proof of the "B"'s true history.
Has anyone ever succesfully contacted HD Archives regarding info..??
Does anyone have any documents?
mine is number 2753 matching frame + engine.
How many more "B"s are left in the world.?
Big shout outs to all the "B" crew. we need to stay together and get to the bottom of this.
