Default Quick Question - Kickstart

Just a quick question. I have searched but have not found...


What was the last year for a kick-start on Harleys. Was it the same for all years or was each model different?

Thanks

I believe 1979 was the last year a kickstart was possible. From '80 on the primary case was not drilled out for the kicker shaft and they relocated the rear master cylinder down where the shaft would normally exit the sprocket cover. I have a kit for my '78 to add a kickstart that I'll be installing this winter.
