On my 71 (original owner) turn signals were offered as an accessory for $43.95. As far as using hand signals today, it only confusses the monkeys, they just wave back.

According to AAA, turn signals became mandatory on all motorcycles manufactured after Jan. 1, 1973.

Or they think you’re giving them the bird! I’ve had that a few times - young punks.

Ok I found infos in the 1954-78 Part Catalogue:

The 68552-70 was used for 63 to Early 73 XLH and on 70 to 73 XLCH
The 68514-73 for Late 73 to * on XLH XLCH.

The 68552-70 is a flat Lamp, the 68514-73 seams to be the same as the one I have on my 1992 XLH when new.


The 68508-64 is perhaps the same as the 68552-70 except for 6V then 12 V.

Perhaps not a good idea to use turn signal on a no-battery bike, but may help for my 1964 FL. when I have to drive in France.
As I understood, the turn signal for Sportster and FLH are the same flat light till 1973 and then the Sportster's one are different type for a long time.

I still let my left arm do all the signaling.

Same for me for my 3 HD.
Except that in Europe you have to use right hand to signal right turn and in France police stop you first if you have not the lighting gadget and then controle all your bike that take 1/2 houre for nothing in my case.
No problem in Switzerland.

2 of my children will pass the licence this year, I think I will put back turn signals on the bike they are allowed to drive (1992 xlh).
