Now that's an interesting thought. Here we have a bike that was in Army service early in the war years. Maybe used in a training facility. By early 1943 the numbers of bikes accepted by the Army from H-D might still have been small, so the first US troops sent to England could have been provided with bikes from those already in use. If you look at this video you will see that they were using the 41 models that did not have the oil bath air cleaners.
