No oil lamps, but the mount is there?
I think its a 15, Thanks Jay. I love all your photos.
Headlight forks with black rimmed headlights?
Forked headlights were really early 15
I see it's got the "same" smooth black tires (or maybe dirty white or gray?) like my '12 touring. Boy those are some strange looking tires, but they sure do roll QUIETLY!!
I think John maybe right. I don't believe many '16s still had taper front springs.
The oil lamp bracket is integral to the '15 - '16 w.s. frame - not a separate bracket as the later style.
Happy Fourth !
With those forked headlamps, probably Canadian Production, and could be a '16. Black headlight rims would indicate so.
i think its a 15 and they got sick of polishing the brass ha,ha. charley
p.s. they will be painting that rad next!!!!!!!!!!!charley
There is no point in hiding that wire to the headlight under and behind where it might get pinched. 8o)
