Correct a Star hub has a tin piece over the bearing that is retained by screws.

I know this guy. Bike is solid. For all of you cam grind hunters, hit him up and request his cam list. You may be surprised at what he has behind his listing of "other Ironhead parts"

Question. Why do some folks cut the kicker cover like this? To prevent a loose chain from eating into the top of the kicker cover or to prevent the kicker from getting really messed up if a chain breaks?

Check out this '70s front end. Jeez.

I hope he gets a lot of his money back. He did a lovely job on this 72.

Over here in Oz very few boys had Harleys, mostly British stuff and from that other country. I'm talking up to the mid '70s, then the easy finance became available. But we all bought Easy Riders every month religiously, and pored over every page. It seemed not an impossible thing to get some sort of chopped Harley going and on the road. I wonder how many there were back in the day?
