Palmer's book, page 478 states that "a third version of the Royalite bag was also introduced with a stylized rocket emblem on its side for 1963-1964 Duo-Glide models"
Can anyone post a picture of this style with this "rocket emblem" ?

Thanks Perry. That is the first time I have seen that emblem. Your bags?

They used to be. They're long gone now, but I snapped a shot before they left ... Perry

That style bag seemed more common on early 60s XLHs than on FL models. I have that style bag in black on my wife's 57 FLH.

Perry, are you still in the Knucklehead dash base rebuilding business?
