Thanks Tony,
That's what I thought, the originals are much smaller then the -51T version,
Thanks for taking the time to post

Adam,
Check out my plug holder (last pic under projects). I was told it’s a repop of what was manufactured years ago by an aftermarket company. It was intended to be mounted on top of the battery box of a Knuckle. It was made to take the larger knuck plugs, I reworked it so Pan plugs would fit. I'd never seen one or know anything about it. Being you're poking around on the topic have you ever come across one or know of its original origin???
Shot in the dark ;-)

Huck, I'm not sure who sold them back then , Beck? Atlas? I know the remakes are being sold thru Vtwin , and various sellers on eBay . It's a pretty cool item for sure. I want to limit my accessories to what the MOCO offered in the catalogs , but there are some really cool items that were available aftermarket back then. The form my bike is in right now, hanging extra stuff won't look right. I'm collecting all the pieces to get her in deluxe form, full dress. I've been basically making corrections and replacing whatever repro stuff I have with OE parts, not much left to replace ( yeah !) . I've got all the hardware and parts ready for my deluxe buddy seat that Michael Paquette is doing , might look funny as the bike sits now,
But the mouse wants to ride!

Ok , this is what I found, so the 91775-51 has nothing to do with the later eagle iron or Harley holders... I thought it was a matter of hardware corrections , and finish, it's not....

Adam,
Apologies for pulling your post off topic. Thanks for the ebay lead, I never gave ebay a thought. Sure enough they are for sale there. Geeze ebay is so lame, I think I paid 20 dollars for mine at a Denton swap meet.

Huck , I think the original ones were made for 18mm plugs to thread into. Not sure if they were made for 14mm back then, but the remakes are now. It's a really nice little item. You did well at 20 bucks...
