the evo missed it production date by 3 years,.....1980, ever wonder why a shovelhead motor in a FLT would rub the underside of a FLT gas tank if you didn't shove the tank away from the rocker boxes, i worked at AMF HD 1979 to just after the motor co bought out AMF, and there were always evo prototypes being test run in york. all the top end cooling fins looked as someone had chipped them off with a hammer, but condition appeared to be a casting problem. the FLT gas tank is stamped to clear an evo and not a shovelhead.
