here's a link to a thread we had 2 years ago, scroll up to the top of the thread, there's a link to where I bought it. The "red-top" KOYO is still doing fine in my '47.

How about this? Search for H2 when you get there.

The first one pictured on the Interstate site looks just
like the same battery that Ted sells, made in India, POS!

The last 6v battery I bought for my pan, I bought at................. the Harley shop..! Imagine that. Good, high-quality battery.

looks like you still can , too! Here the info from Harley's site.
66006-29F
IN-STORE PURCHASE ONLY Contact dealer for pricing and availability.
6V. Fits '64-earlier FL and '63-earlier GE models.
MSRP US $69.95

I guess the MOCO still cares about keeping the old bikes on the road. (at least this tiny bit).
I see they still have the EVO motor rebuild program too. Just think, first EVO in 84. Thats almost 30 years ago. Just think of buying a 65 pan , and being able to send it in for a factory rebuild in 1992.

The Dealer batteries are made in India. Yuasa is the only battery I put in my bike after my fiasco with different crappy Chinese, Vietnamese and Indian batteries. Yuasa's are made in Japan.

I don't think Yuasa has made a 6 volt H-2 style battery in 10 or 15 years.

I used to use the Interstate H-2 batteries, but a few years ago they told me they stopped making them, that's when I went to the dealer. It looks like Interstate is making them again? Or perhaps I was told wrong a few years ago.....

I forgot to mention, I switched to 12v due to the quality of 6v battery quality.
