    Default 1965 Electra Glide clutch and brake levers

    Hello,

    Can someone provide a picture of the correct levers for the clutch and brake on a 1965 Electra Glide? I know there are no holes in the perches since the mirrors clamped to the bars but do the levers have the ball on the end or are they straight? I've been searching but coming up with conflicting results.

    Thanks!

    They are straight and have the ball on the end...the same lever as the later models, but no hole in the perch. Your confusion probably comes from assholes on eBay claiming the lever they are selling is a 1965 with no hole and is in fact a 1964 and back lever.

    65 thru 67 levers don't use the white plastic top hat bushings.

    Thanks for the clarification. And you are right about the sellers on eBay!
