Panhead changes: Tapered pinion shaft and gear and oil-pump worm gear for this year to reduce gear noises. 3 frame types: Wishbone without horn mount; Wishbone with flattened downtubes-no horn mount; Straight leg with "T" mounting bracket. Jubilee trumpet horn is introduced, faster acting throttle, round check balls in oil pump, nonsplined shifter shaft and lever, new foot shifter w/optional heel lever. While not on the order blanks, officially the first optional dual exhaust is ordered from the accessory catalog. Black hard plastic saddlebags could be ordered, and winged fireball emblems were placed everywhere.
