1955 FLH options list?

#1

Post by gwyld714 »

Curious if anyone out there has an original options list or accessory list for a 1955 FLH? Also where would I be able to get a copy of the Palmer book?

Thanks.

Rubone, do you have these in a higher resolution file. I would love to get a readable copy.

Thanks

Carl,
I can scan a higher resolution copy of '55 for you. I also have the sales booklet, the accessory catalog, riders handbook, and Enthusiast with the announcement for '55. I have sales orders from the '20s to '57 after which they changed format.

I have all of the above documents. Did not have the sales order blank. I would appreciate a high res version of both pages. Can you email it to me at carl@partnershipresources.com. It will be nice to actually see what each group offered.

Thanks so much.
Carl

Regretfully it is currently out of print and will likely not be re-printed since Bruce is working on a more updated version to be out sometime in the next year. And most of those selling the most current version are trying to retire on it. Plus the earliest version is still out there as well but is seriously outdated.

Yes Found it on ebay for $300. That's insane. I'll guess I'll have to wait for the new version.

RUBONE, do you know what the original size of this document is? I put your scan together in photoshop and want to print it out at the original size.
