Layden, if they are 9-12 shouldn't they have the casting holes on top for top straps??
Only some of 1911 production was like that. Earlier the top strap goes to an eye on the radiator mounting bolt. 1912 has the strap to the windshield hinge.
Joe, you are partially correct. Early '12 did have a hole on the iron,for the long leather straps like my '12 has, then later the "hole" was left "filled" in, as the top strap thence only attached to the windshield hinge. This iron would be more suited for a '13.
