New tank emblem is round Lucite disc, with 2 red and 2 silver quadrants with red "Harley Davidson" name. This and the new front fender tip was HD's first use of plastic for emblems.
Panhead changes: Steel alloy valve guides -(starting February 1st), instead of bronze exhaust. The exhaust guides were threaded to trap oil. Polished aluminum rocker covers, shorter pushrods w/longer adjusters, thinner speedo cable. The "Big Bertha" saddlebags were optional for 1957 only. Starting with 57FLH4444 stronger valve springs were used.
