    Default '65 Front and Rear Axles

    Well folks I am trying to get some clarity on axles.

    In my Parts Catalog, 1958-1968 it says:
    Front Axle - 43875-48 49 to 66 - FL, FLH
    Rear Axle - 41552-58A 58 to 66 - FL, FLH

    As we all know numbers are great, but pictures are worth a million words.

    Does anyone have a pictures of the correct front and rear axles for a '65?

    I am seeing many variations online, as well as swap meets, and I am questioning which one is right.

    I have seen some with and without a step near the head of the axle, as well as steps in the body of the axle. Some having a
    cotter pin hole on the threads and some not.

    I saw many at the Davenport Swap but some of the vendors were not sure of the year, thus the creation of this thread.

    And as many of us have experienced, it is a difficult year.

    Any pictures, thoughts or advice would be great.

    All I could do is send pic of my 65 axles but they are installed and not much shows, original bike. I see NO cotter pin hole.

    '65s have star hub wheels, so they need all the steps in the axle to work. '67 up axles are one diameter all the way to the axle sleeve.
    Any early hydra-glide axle fits a '65. Early swing-arm axles fit a '65. So they will have three diameters.
