Jacko, '2C' would mean that the motor was originally an FX model. The 'H4' would mean it was manufactured in 1974. Points to remember....Starting in 1970 all HDs had a frame number and engine number that were identical. Starting in 1970 unique die stamps are used to stamp the engine and frame. These numbers are protected by a star before and after the numbers. Starting in 1970 the engine numbers are located on the right engine case on a raised boss.

As far as the vin number is concerned, I am truly at a loss. Where is it on the bike.

That VIN number is odd. Is it a custom frame? I hope the VIN matches your title.

Jacko, if it is a stock frame, it should have numbers simialr to the engine numbers. Otherwise i too would assume it is a custom frame. Is it registered as a 1974 model?

Jacko, does Aus have the same vin number system as the States or Canada? Maybe one of the other Austrailians here can help.
