Lots of issues on that one, with the biggest being the pits in the weld residue all over that case, and the smooth surface of the number boss (should be "as cast" like undisturbed parts of the case. I don't care if it has "legal" paper or anything else, H-D did not put that number on there.

I agree with Rubone , these cases have way to many air holes near serial number. I would stay away from them.DO NOT BUY

jon, is this the bike you bought last year or another one? Either way there are some interesting characters in that SN. Could you post a clearer photo taken at a better angle please. And a picture showing the rest of the left case. Could you also post a photo of the left belly number. Thank you.
