Hi
My names Rob recently I brought a 1962 Harley XLCH unfortunatly someboday had cut the exhausts and mudgurads down to make it look like a bobber! its not totally original and has a 70s biscuit tin oil tank. I have managed to get some 64 exhausts they are T bolt fittings where as I think 62 would have been clampes around the silencer and mudguards/fenders as reproductions are available from Germany and will order some soon! Ive not been able to ride the bike yet as we are in "lockdown" due to the coronavirus.
