me either but the picture provided is almost spot on with one of their sn. without knowing the history of the bike thats all i really have to go off of. some quick googling brought me to a thread on here from 2006 that says they did or still do make sportster cases though.

OP do you have more pictures on the motor in question? are there any other markings on it?

STD did do Sportster/Buell cases. There is another thread here that also talks about them.
Even their web site mentions Sportster

And I emailed std developments last night and they replied saying it wasnt one of their serial numbers from their casings but it could be one of the old serial numbers from the 80's but they wouldn't have that on the system as the original company died out years ago then got all the castings bought out by another company that makes them today so god knows but when I'm stripping it down to renew and replace parts ill check everything that I have to see if its standard 1200 big bore kit or more than standard either way I'm just happy that it is a 1200
