1. As Mr. Palmer's book is considered as a reference - up to a point, is the information in Fields' panhead book also considered this way? I am not talking about the photo's and editorial type data but the technical/reference info in his Panhead Book.
2. "Proper Battery Cover" I have seen a few posts elsewhere that say judges will bump you if you have the -65 ribbed battery. My understanding through King of the Highway group info in fields book (which my bike has) is that the ribbed battery cover was part of that group. If I have KOH original on my bike (yes proper primary cover with inspection plug) will I be gigged on the battery cover?
I'd like to get my '65 judged at some point this year when completed and start the whole process. My purpose is not about getting to some magic point number but feedback on accuracy. I have done a lot of research on '65 before even touching this bike for restoration. I also plan to run it not show it but the judging process should be of some value in terms of proper or accurate representation of '65 FLH with KOHG options.
Any good HD judges specific to '65 Pans I can talk to? These are a strange beast to say the least.
