Hi Otto,

From these small pics, looks like a goose neck XLCH frame, early, Sprint forks and brake, a few later items as well...

BUT: The KR parts books do list the XLCH street frame as a KRTT Daytona frame... It had bigger castings than the K/KR frames, conical reinforcement tubes between steering casting and down tubes... and is NOT chrome-moly, t'was probably a better option for the sand ruts!!!

Reimann number 55 early KRTT that's in a museum somewhere is with the CH frame, genuine and period, but I can't vouch for this one...

More problematic is the Fairbanks-Morse magneto, vertical... which means both timing cover and right hand side case have been changed to std K or KH to allow mag migration from horizontal to vertical and allow dynamo drive gears...

Still, nice bike!!!

Serial number with round back 6 and the letters have serifs? Doesn't look Kosher to me. Serifs went out in the 30's.
