H-D papers and frame, where find

Post by SweBob » Thu Jan 13, 2005 7:30 pm

Hi,

I wish to buy a U.S. ~1940-1950 H-D frame and papers to import to Europe. Does anyone know of a site or market where such items are traded in the States?

Thanks!

Those don't have frame numbers on the years listed ,those years were titled with engine numbers only. Unless your looking for engine and frame?

Sorry, I was having the Swedish hat on. Yes, I am looking for engine and frame and where the engine no. would signal a bike born pre 1950.

SweBob,

If I understand your question correctly, the VIN will clarify the age of the engine. The first two digits stand for the year of mfc. So 49FL1234 stands for a 1949 Panhead.

Thanks for the responses. I guess that E-bay is the best online source then?

To clarify, I am looking to get hold on a pan and frame pre 1950, i.e. where the engine VIN gives that the bike is pre 1950 born. The engine can well be an irreperable piece of s..t, as I intend to replace it with a renovated engine.

Thanks!
