I am afraid more than just the lineage of this fine machine may be in question. Other than the rear brake, which untouchably could be off a K model of some kind, from one of the many years of production. It does posses the '71 series primary cover, and clutch, with the advantage of a '70 and earlier worm drive clutch cover on the other side. This may come in handy, for some reason, which I am unable to perceive at this time. It does resemble a lot of years of fine Harley breeding though, and would be a good project for Trivial Pursuit.

It still may eat less oil per month than my KH. Though I still would bet that the KH gets more mile to at quart, though the KH may burn it more efficiently than this one leaks it.

More fun for all!

Back in '69 I had an electric start, overhead valve 52 K Model. It was simple. I had a set of blown up K cases and I simply ordered new cases with those numbers on them.
