    This sure got off the rails. Well now that you are on the subject of younger people on older bikes. Where I am in SENYState there are plenty of younger people on old bikes. Sportsters, bobbers of all varieties etc. I can't GIVE away a membership to our Chapter to them. I see them, I know some of them and tell them you only have to show up at a meeting and a free 1 year membership is yours. Crickets.........

    It makes me absolutely sick! He sends knuckles out a pair to 4 at a time as well as American inline 4 bikes of all makes. He also sells a lot of pre 1939 Indians to New Zealand and Australia. He will liquidate complete collections without physically setting eyes on the bikes. He said the only bike he owns that should not be sent out is an Evil Kenevil bike.
    He is really on a roll this year exporting just one 150 bikes. I think it should be against the law!!!

    More than one format was used for sand-cast date codes—for example, some codes are numbers-only and have no letters while some other codes are letter-number. Also some, not all, situations involving the letters I and M remain under investigation as does the spacing of characters in some, not all, codes.

    Are there any date codes in particular you need help with? If you have photos then please post them because sometimes the same code was used on pieces that were produced ten years apart.

    Its like my nephew, he had a sportster that still had carbs as his 1st bike, sold it because it took too long to warm up...now he has a fuel injected version haha its been in the shop about 5 times for probs, to him my 73 is a dinosaur, (oh you wont be able too keep up with the other guys) really. I said go ahead ill catch up.Its a shame the younger generation doesnt or isnt interested in the older stuff. Or should i say most im sure some are..But yes the prices are going threw the roof just like musclecars.
